What makes a photographer tick? Do “the perfect shot” or “the decisive moment” exist? In Image Makers, we uncover the processes and motivations behind internationally renowned photographers from Singapore. Through interviews and reviews of their works, we attempt to get to the heart of the work and their approach to art creation. The series of short documentary films features the following photographers: John Clang (dir. Kirsten Tan), Darren Soh (dir. Chai Yee Wei), Chow Chee Yong (dir. Pok Yue Weng), Robert Zhao Renhui (dir. by Jow Zhi Wei), Ho Hui May (dir. by Liao Jiekai), Tay Kay Chin (dir. by Wong Chen-Hsi) and Russel Wong (dir. by Jean Qingwen Loo).

The Ottoman Way of Serving Coffee

The Ottoman Way of Serving Coffee

Coffee was served with much splendor at the harems of the Ottoman palace and mansions. First, sweets (usually jam) was served on silverware, followed by coffee serving. The coffee jug would be placed in a sitil (brazier), which had three chains on its sides for carrying, had cinders in the middle, and was made of tombac, silver or brass. The sitil had a satin or silk cover embroidered with silver thread, tinsel, sequin or even pearls and diamonds.
