These portraits and their accompanying video portraits feature different groups of people living in Hougang Single Member Constituency, a political ward in Singapore. They were recorded in the days leading up to a By-Election on the 26th of May, 2012, three months after its former Member of Parliament Yaw Shin Leong resigned from the opposition Workers' Party, thereby losing his right to represent Hougang.

Here, residents share their thoughts on the candidates, parties and issues of the election contest. The final work was published at http://meetthepeople.net.

All still portraits photographed in collaboration with Neo Xiaobin.
