Burial Hill

by Tan Zheng Jie, Nigel

Burial Hill is an explorative insight into a lesser depicted side of one of Singapore’s proclaimed “sleepy” towns, Toa Payoh.
The town has a rich, deep, and lasting relationship with gangs, and the publication seeks to shed more light on what truly encompasses the term “gangster;" their lifestyles, as well as the community, culture, and loved ones around such individuals. It also broaches upon themes of coming of age and empathy, seeking to humanise gangsters and delinquents – perhaps some of the most human of us all.
