Torsten Scheel Fotografie - Contemporary Photography - Singapore HDB - Vertical Island Series

Torsten Scheel is a German photographer and digital artist living in Singapore. In his work Torsten aims at producing a contemporary representation of the visual appearance and its relation to the underlying social fabric of the public housing estates of Singapore (HDB).

The series Vertical Island explores the visual and spatial properties of the high rise landscape of public housing in various areas of Singapore, which gives the appearance of an infinite continuation, a limitless expanse of geometric structures mostly devoid of humans but occassionally displaying their traces.
