Concept Shoot @ House of Tan Yeok Nee
Client: Yan Ling MUA: Liju Photography/Editing: Sharon Assistant: Yun Once in a while, beautiful things happen. Like being able to do a shoot at the House of Tan Yeok Nee, the last remaining traditional Chinese courtyard house in Singapore :) Hanfu photography is particularly challenging in Singapore due to the lack of suitable locations, so being able to photograph in a furnished historical building was a special experience, despite some inevitable anachronisms.
Currently home to a TCM hospital, the place also has special significance for our client who is a medical practitioner. However, the clinic will be moving out soon and it’s uncertain what the future will hold for this building. If you would like to visit, the house conducts occasional heritage tours and you can look up their Facebook page for more information!
