It stung like a violent wind that our memories depend on a faulty camera in our minds – Death Cab For Cutie, What Sarah Said

TOO OFTEN WE are afraid of forgetting, and turn to camera lenses in the hope of finding a forever. In a way, photographs capture and make eternal moments, places, and people. Parallel Planets collaborates with Lomography Singapore in holding an exhibition titled Façades: Neo-Noir Portraits, open from March 8th to April 4th at Lomography Embassy Singapore’s headquarters, 295 South Bridge Road.

Set in a cosy environment, viewers can expect an introspective experience in this face-to-face encounter with the portraits. It is also the first exhibition by Parallel Planets. The concept behind the exhibition is simple and earnest--subjects are brought into focus when colour is stripped from the images; a form of clarity descends on these analogue photographs, carefully curated by Erin Nøir, editor-in-chief of Parallel Planets.

The 20 photographs line the wall of the headquarters, surrounded by displays of analog cameras in the same room. Twenty captured identities, twenty different realities that exist in parallels are brought together; we see the subjects in moments of vulnerability and rawness, each a façade on its own.

Contributors include (in alphabetical order): Allison White, Amy Chu, Andrew Janjigian, Dylan Barnes, Erin Nøir, Graziella Ines, Manuel Estheim, Marta Huguet, Mikah Manansala, Mira Heo, Hanna Varela, JC Gratila, Kamal Tung, Kazuyuki Watanabe, Mao Shuang, Rachel Minn Lee, Rahul Advani, Simon Tay, Tiffany Tan, and Timothy Tan.
