Singapore Colors

Peter Steinhauer has spent more than two decades in Asia, photographing everything from Hong Kong’s brightly shrouded skyscrapers to bustling markets in Indonesia and beyond. But when he and his family moved to Singapore a few years ago, he was stumped by what to shoot—until he saw the massive, candy-colored apartment buildings.

Steinhauer says: “I just take pictures of things because I think they look cool. What interested me is that someone took a lot of time to find color schemes and fonts—sometimes scripted or blockish or art deco fonts, some with drop shadow and lots of style—and I was intrigued that they put a lot of effort into all of that.”
