First World Privileges

Sometimes we forget the many benefits and privileges that are afforded us by residing in a first world society. One that is kept safe and secure by the governing body, whether it is with a physical presence, through visual representation or via electronic surveillance, the message of security helps to both instill a sense of confidence to law abiding citizens as well as a deterrence to criminals. It is with this confidence that a society begins its’ transformation to a first world society.

It is my intention to highlight some of the benefits and privileges as one is allowed to grow within such a society. The images were shot in a reportage style with double exposing in mind. Through the use of double exposures, you will be able to perceive a “First World” attribute as it relates to the subject.

*** These 6 images are a portion of the 18 image portfolio that earned the Fellowship Distinction from the Photographic Society of Singapore.
