Shifting Currents: Glimpses of a Changing Nation is the first book to present a significant collection of photographs by Kouo Shang-Wei (1924-1988).
Over several decades spanning the 1950s to the late 1980s, Kouo's keen eye captured thousands of images of a rapidly changing Singapore. His photographs provide us with a precious record of that period and the price of modernisation.
The images in this book were carefully curated from the Kouo Shang-Wei Collection in the National Library, Singapore, by art historian, Zhuang Wubin.
