Photographer's Note

HDB stands for Housing Development Board and it is Singapore's public housing authority. You can see them in this image, and Singapore has plently of these flats. In 1960, when the HDB was first set up, 9% of Singapore's population live in government housing. Today 87% lives in them. That's almost the entire population. This is a world record for number of population staying in government housing.
