Closing time attempts to document the quietly disappearing heritage of Shophouse typology in Penang, Malaysia. The photos were taken during the wee hours to capture a moment in time where one contemplates the past and future.

The story line mimics the mood of a lullaby - tonally simple & repetitive patterns. This also mimics the moment a baby experiences in the womb as a mother moves.

Closing Time was made during the Obscura Photo Festival '13
