Urban Legends 2.0

By Alexander Ow

An urban legend to many, urban memories that stood the test of time or some became contemporary legends which are now a part of modern genre. They consist of many stories, many forgotten, and many still remembered.

One only has to look around Singapore to see that gleaming modern architectural wonders co-existing in harmony with heritage districts brimming with history. In fact, many of Singapore's historical buildings and streets have been repurposed for modern uses or just simply preserved.

Here are some of these … time, space and the urban settings as seen through the images by Alexander Ow.

About Alexander Ow

Alexander Ow is an award winning Singapore-born professional photographer, who specializes in Advertising and Commercial Photography.

An image creator for over 25 years, Alexander has been fortunate enough to be involved with both local and international advertising agencies, magazines, brands and celebrities.

Alexander has worked with a large breadth of clients including Sony, Heineken, Levi’s, Dior, Louis Vuitton, and Cartier. His years of experience with SPH Magazines got him clicking shutters for CLEO, Women’s Weekly, and internationally recognized Harpers Bazaar. He also lectured at Singapore Polytechnic - School of Design, First Media Design Academy, and Objectifs. Most recently, he was at Asia’s first visual marketplace, Pixerf, as Lead Photographer and Curator.

His journey as a creative began in 1989. “I was a graphic design student at Temasek Polytechnic, but the lure of the lens beckoned during a photography module and I’ve never looked back since. I’ve also ventured into videography, where I spin moving visuals to tell stories of people and brands.”

Alexander’s work is always about ensuring a progressive aesthetic to any given campaign. Technically proficient, and with a strong background in the pre-digital era of photography, his ability to capture dynamic visuals without the need to rely on heavy post-production and photo manipulation. This allows him to be adaptable to changes and situations. It is for these reasons Alexander has been the preferred choice for clients in the creative industry.

Alexander is currently a partner of RAW, Asia’s first co working space for Photographers, where they Learn, Work and Play. Former Founder of Wizards of Lights Pte Ltd (1997-2010), Alexander now is the Founder and Lead Photographer of Light Wizards.

His philosophy towards his craft is simple: “possess the Desire, Devotion and Discipline to create nothing less than captivating work.” And when he can, he travels for inspiration – for there’s never a dearth of it in the world.
