Eye e City - A Visual Account of the Last 24 Hours Location: Singapore

As the world moves rapidly, economy progresses, changes become inevitable.

Have you pondered about what is a city without a past?

Or have you retraced your footsteps?

What memories does the city hold?

Since 2002, enthusiasts have been traversing Singapore on the last day of each year capturing images of the island and her people with their cameras.

From the heartlands to the nature reserves, from Chinatown to Orchard Road, participants visited all corners of the island in search of their subjects.

From the images submitted, 100 that best represents each year were selected for publication and a month-long exhibition at the National Library.

The objective of this project is to preserve the collective memories of Singapore through the eyes of people from all walks of life, be they foreign or local.

It is a collective effort to document humanism and history of the city. It is taking an interest in and caring for the city.
