A few weeks back an Art Walk was organized in Wessex Village here in Singapore. Wessex Village is an area of old colonial style apartment blocks. Originally they were used to house British soldiers, but a few years back they have been offered as residential and studio space for artists.
The buildings are apartment blocks with an external design similar to Singapore black and white colonial houses. The blocks have name of cities, regions or countries. I suppose they are name of regiments or cantonment cities of the British army.
Aden is one of these magic names that sparks ideas of exoticism and 19th century adventurers to my mind.
Noé was posing for this Japanese painter whose apartment / workshop we visited.
A very easy homage to Paul Nizan book “Aden Arabie“.
What do we seek when we travel? Do we need to go to Aden to seek the truth about where we live? Aden is here anyway.
More down to earth you can imagine this is the score of a soccer match !
This was the week before the International Commie Camera Day, so I took the Kiev IV loaded with an Ilford PAN 400ASA with the Jupiter 8 50mmF2 and Jupiter 12 35mmF2.8. As you can see on my post about the Kiev I had to tape the body to avoid light leaks; got a couple funny looks.
I love the black and white of this set of pictures; particularly the black of the tire on this one.
Camera: Kiev IV
Lens: Jupiter 8- 50mmf2
Film: Ilford Pan 400 ASA
