In a way, we are detached because we always identified as Singaporeans.
The premise of this short film is that a young girl’s happiness and fantasy keeps getting interrupted by outside sources. Her fantasy can be whatever you take it to be, whether that be her dancing by herself, consuming confetti and joy, remaining true to her values, whatever you might identify with.
A constant argument that I’ve had with virtually every close friend of mine occurs whenever I love a photo of them that they hate, or vice versa. I once posted a picture I loved of a friend on Facebook, and she rang me within five minutes to demand I take it down. I decided to explore the difference between how we see ourselves and how others in our lives see us.
This trip was also different than anyone I’d been on, because in addition to capturing every inch of the space around me with my Canon camera, I had another agenda. I was going to observe how the women figure into Balinese society. What role do they play? Are they respected, treated as equals?
The Women’s March shattered my preconceived image of political protests. We were necessitating and demanding a change. By marching, we represented an active refusal of our society’s current state.

Two-Bedroom Apartment is a self-portrait series sprung from the loins of loneliness. It is an exercise in self-love, both by appearing scantily clad in the photos, and by turning volatile, racing emotions into something that feels better. This series aims to be kinder to oneself, to take a moment and bask in the little bit of light that creeps in.
The females in Photographer Caroline Geithner’s photos are decorations; objects of entertainment. Their beaming faces illuminate a devastating innocence--a lack of awareness that their roles and value in society have been decided for them.
