Railway to history

During a photo competition, some friends and I decided to take photos of the Bukit Timah Railway Station. For Singapore, this station is a valuable historical asset. In the past, the station (not seen in the picture), along with pieces of track within the vicinity, came under the jurisdiction of Malaysia. Recently, the Malaysian government agreed to transfer ownership of this tiny oasis of Malaysian land to Singapore. Although rail services, which had been serviced by a Malaysian rail company, have ceased operations, this piece of land has been transformed into a "Green Corridor" where Singaporeans may experience a slice of history and a forest environment rarely seen elsewhere on the island.

I am Ziren Wang, a student from Raffles Institution, Singapore. I picked up a camera in January 2009 in my school's photographic society, and I have never looked back. Years later, I have explored various different forms of photography, from event coverage, to fashion, to documentary, to photography using DIY lenses, and most recently, to film.
