Down Memory Lane in Singapore:
This picture of a lady carrying a black umbrella shows that somewhere near Chinatown, it was still possible in the old days to get away from the maddening crowd. Notice the infra-red photography used to give grandeur and excitement to the coconut trees on the left. The picture is distinctive in the way light and shadows are played, and the way the sky is depicted. Particularly interesting are the clouds and the leaves of the coconut trees. There is dramatic intensity in the scenery.
This is one of the many awards winning pictures of a Chinatown photographer who has conferred the title of “Honorary Outstanding Photographe of the Century” as a photographic specialist in Seascape. Yip Cheong fun, the Master lensman, was also awarded the coveted 1984 Cultural Medallion by the Government of the Republic of Singapore “in recognition of his artistic talent and creativity and for commendable achievement in Photography”.
