This folio of 30 photographs is sold as a boxed set in an edition of 12, and includes an out of print, signed copy of Lloyd’s book, which illustrates these images. The price of the folio will increase as the edition sells. A detailed list of the folio is available on request.

Lloyd photographed a series of images of Singapore during 1984 to document the city’s changes, as it was “rapidly modernising, shedding its colonial era image of a sailors’ port for an island city state with high-rises and high-tech manufacturing…[Chinatown] was not the image that the government wanted to promote to tourists and investors.” Lloyd spent time photographing and documenting Chinatown before its inevitable re-development, lending his photographs greater historical importance. His images were turned into a book, Chinatown: a personal portfolio, published in 1984 by MPH Bookstores (Singapore). Ref: R. Ian Lloyd.
