DOVER PARK SINGAPORE

Following on from my Lunch Club project, I headed to Dover Park Hospice in Singapore where I was honoured to photograph Mdm Tay Choon Huay for a photography essay on care for the elderly. Dover Park is one of the only bespoke hospices in Singapore, with all guests within the last 3 months of their lives. Mdm Tay, despite having never painted, discovered the liberation and joy of watercolour painting while at Dover Park, and spent her days there painting with great gusto! It seemed to bring such great joy to her during her final days. Dover Park is a beautiful hospice, where the emphasis is making guests as comfortable and happy as possible during their last days. It was an inspiring place to photograph.
