DARK CITIES Trilogy, inaugural winner of the FIRST DRAFT Award by THEBOOKSHOW, is a series of three books of photographs re-imagining fringe spaces in the metropoles of Singapore, Tokyo and Seoul. CARPARK, first in the series, investigates the nocturnal meanderings of a dark multi-storey carpark in Singapore. CAPSULE, the second book, revisits a futuristic tower in Ginza built in the 1970s, through the imagined eyes and mind of its architect. The third book EULJIRO is a lost and found diary of a fading iconic Seoul district, once a symbol of the country’s modernization.
Co-published by Invisible Photographer Asia (IPA), DARK CITIES is the debut publication of Singapore-based architect and photographer Shyue Woon.
Dark Cities / Shyue Woon
Shyue Woon (1975) works as an Architect. His photographic work is motivated by his interest in fringe spaces within modern constructed urban centres and megacities. He is curious about how built environments and their utility get subverted over time.
