Singapore is a melting pot of nations: people from all over the world come to this small island to live and work. Tom Soper captures 50 stunning portraits of people from 50 different countries, where they and Soper share their thoughts and feelings about Singapore, their home countries, photography and portraiture. A beautiful parting gift to the city-state on her 50th birthday, Singapore: A Portrait In Diversity is a photography project celebrating the incredible diversity within this pulsing, red dot.
