Portraits of the past #2

Found an old black and white portrait of myself taken by my uncle Ng Kwang Yeow 黄光耀.
In the mid 70s my uncle was into photography, back then it was just film photography.
I couldn’t recall which film camera he used but for sure i know for the lighting set up, he just use a floor lamp.

I also recalled following him to his make shift “dark room” at Clementi Estate.
Where I watched him develop the films in the toilet. That was the only time i stepped into a “dark room”

Today at the age of 60+, he still goes around taking photos using a Samsung Mobile Phone.

While looking at my uncle’s Facebook Photo Albums, I also found these outtakes he shot and scanned.
