"What are you doing there? It's boring! -But no, look at this, it's so beautiful!"

Jon Siegel 
shares his passion for photography. He started to use his camera to appreciate his daily life when he lived in Tokyo and has carried it on after moving to Singapore, as well. Through his photos, he turns ordinary reality into a deeper and intimate personal experience that enables him to tell a story and explore the details of places and people. Photography indeed has also brought him great friendships. It's enough to take a lunch break to start looking deeper into what's under our eyes everyday. 

APPLAUD THIS!
