Parting Glances: Singapore’s Evolving Spaces Photo exhibition will be held at level 7 National Library Building at 100 Victoria Street, from 25 July to 31 August 2013. It features 6 different neighbourhoods namely, Seletar Camp, Lorong Buangkok, Macpherson, People’s Park Chinatown, Queentown and Pulau Ubin.

Many things and buildings have to make way for redevelopment purposes. It is difficult to part them and its rich history. With an 
aim to capture and preserve history as it is unfolding, Parting Glances brings Singapore’s delicate balancing act of forging the future while preserving the past to centre stage through these 24 photos and the accompanying launch of a hardcover book with the same title.
