Singapore has changed a lot.

Sometimes we get too caught up within the change that we might not notice how stark it is.

Adam Snyder, an American man who’s been living in Singapore since 2013, helped with that contrast by placing photos taken almost 30 years ago, with photos taken in modern day Singapore.

His father, Joel Snyder, had spent some time in Singapore during the late 80’s and early 90’s.

While here, he took some really cool photos.

Almost 30 years later his son, Adam, came to live in Singapore as well, and continues to juxtapose the old and the new.

He posted this new batch once again to Reddit Singapore on May 4, 2019.

Now Adam’s back with a new round of pictures showcasing the growth Singapore’s gone through.
