AI photography with AikBengChia

Singaporean graphic designer AikBeng Chia started to take photographs with his iPhone in 2008, and has since become one of Singapore’s most creative photographers, despite lacking formal training. Chia’s street photography has gained international recognition, and one of his most exciting projects is SingKarPor, a collection of snapshots of everyday life taken on the streets of Singapore over five years. Recently, he has explored the world of AI photography, and his “Return to Bugis Street” is a fusion of AI technology and artistic expression, transporting viewers to the vibrant atmosphere of 1970s Bugis Street and shedding light on the lives of its transvestite and transsexual communities.
