This volume encompasses my second collection of street photographs taken over one and a half years between 2020 and 2021. The year 2020 began like any other, but quickly turned into a year that changed the world forever. The outbreak of COVID-19, first reported in Wuhan, China, in December 2019, rapidly spread beyond China's borders, leading to a global pandemic. Singapore detected its first locally infected case in February, leading to the government's announcement of a circuit breaker in April. The semi-lockdown led to the closure of workplaces and schools, with people working and learning from home. Dining in restaurants was prohibited, and wearing masks outside became mandatory. The measures were gradually relaxed by June, but there were still periodic outbreaks, which led to the tightening of measures. For me, the movement restrictions, social distancing, and working from home made street photography challenging. Nevertheless, I attempt to capture street scene as much as possible. As we move towards a new normal, I look forward to exploring new approaches in street photography.
