Jonathan Teo Contrasts Singaporean Foodie Favorites With Their American Counterparts

Jonathan Teo sees photography as the science of capturing fleeting light to preserve ephemeral moments, and his interest in the art form stems from his passion for tinkering with gadgets. He feels that photography is one of the rare instances where his obsessive experimentation, regardless of the simplicity of the instrument, can create a beautiful result.

This September, Jonathan comments on Singaporean foodie culture by taking buddy photos of popular food items found in Singapore and their counterparts in the States. His photographs use food to demonstrate cultural affinities and will be on exhibit as part of “8288 Nautical Miles,” during the arts festival “Something To Write Home About,” taking place this September in New York City.
