Eye on Southeast Asia

Zhuang Wubin


The notion of resistance seems to exist only within the sphere of politics in the dichotomy of heroes vs. villains. Clearly, this definition is rather narrow.

My starting point is different. I was travelling in the region during my vacations for the last three years while pursuing a journalism degree back in Singapore and learning to use a camera. Needless to say, it was boring to just “pass through” the countries. So I started searching for stories to tell although I didn't think I could sell them. As I set out without a theme in mind, my contextual lens was slightly more neutral. Therefore, I have stories of people in acts of political defiance. But I also have anecdotes of people getting on with everyday life when the odds are not in their favour.
