I love when people find new ways to tell familiar stories.
This great NYT Mag story shares the story of John Clang’s reimagining of classic Singaporean family portraits to accommodate for the emigration of younger generations. In these portraits, skype serves as a proxy for proximity, uniting families separated by land and sea.
For some reason, I find this particular image incredibly moving. Maybe it’s the way that, despite thousands of miles separation, the daughter still manages to lean on her mother.
