Six photographers from across Southeast Asia have captured unseen parts of Singapore in an effort to attract more tourists to the country. The virtual exhibition, called UNSEEN/SINGAPORE, showcases cultural sites, heritage buildings, and art beyond the typical tourist attractions. The exhibition is a collaboration between the Singapore Tourism Board and National Geographic CreativeWorks and features works by Jayaprakash Bojan, Rockkhound, Amani Azlin, Tino Renato, Pham Gia Tung, and Gab Mejia.
The photographers traveled across Singapore in mid-2022 to capture everything from offshore wetlands to cultural sites and heritage buildings. UNSEEN/SINGAPORE is part of the SingapoReimagine tourism campaign, which aims to boost travel recovery by highlighting new and unexpected experiences. In 2022, Singapore drew 6.3 million international visitors, with Indonesia being the top market, contributing $1.1 billion. The Singapore Tourism Board is bullish about 2023 and forecasts visitor arrivals to double and reach 12 to 14 million.Source: The Star
