My regular running route seems to be blocked by masses waiting for the forbidden city to open for the day. #stefenchow #forbiddencity #crowds #beijing

Attended a wedding in Beijing where the theme is imperial dynasty.
Waitresses in outlandish costumes, super loud drum performances, and smokers everywhere in the supposedly non smoking session of the restaurant.
You learn something new everyday. #beijing #china #weddings

Little Chow (@littlechows ) turns 4 today!
What a wonderful journey it has been for wifey and I. As I picked her off school yesterday, I still cannot imagine that I am now a father of a toddler that seems to be rather wise between her ears.
Sometimes.
I am very appreciative to be part of her growth process, and you, Facebook friends, have seen her grow too over the years.
More adventures ahead!

Went out for an early run in Shanghai before my flight back to Beijing. Beautiful light, and lots of human activity at barely 6am in the morning.

So glad to have spent a weekend afternoon with Marine Cabos, founder of @photographyofchina and Pierre when they were in town in Beijing.
Wifey was arranging a didi cab with Marine, while Pierre supervises Little Chow on a make shift slide at the lama temple. Littler Chow takes notes.

In Shanghai for the day. My office today. #photography #shanghai #onassignment #stefenchow

Equivalence by Chow and Lin. Singapore | 2017

Equivalence – Cans series delves into the state of the economy, social inequality and consumption patterns. It confronts us on how we view everyday life, often with our own set of tinted glasses, perhaps obscured by our world view determined by where we stand on the society strata. In 2016, a single discarded aluminium can was worth S$0.015 to a can collector. The price had plummeted by over 60% in the past five years due to global commodities slowdown. In Singapore, low income earners and the elderly form a large part of individuals who collect cans and cardboard recyclables to sell to traders. 1,000 of these recycled cans, photographed individually on the grounds of a waste metal collection centre in Singapore, formed a combined value of S$15.00. We juxtaposed a single protective case for the iPhone 6, currently one of the most popular smartphones in the country. The monetary worth of this case is exactly the same as the worth of the 1,000 cans. Singapore’s mobile penetration rate reached 149.8% in 2016.An observation: The global market for mobile phone accessories was worth US$81.5 billion in 2015, 3 times the worth of global HIV drug market in the same year. Currently on show at the @objectifscentre till 14th May 2017. #art #chowandlin #equivalence #1percent #99percent #inequality #contemporaryart #photography #typography
