This photograph is part of the collection entitled ‘Chinese Opera’.
This elderly performer applies thick stage makeup with her hands before the night’s performance. The dusty mirror starkly contrasts with the plastic, lime green water-bottle, echoing opposition between this ancient art form and the ever increasing modernernity of Singapore.
