    In the hustle and bustle of city life, we often forget that we share our urban jungle with creatures of the wild. We allow the fuss of daily life stop us from experiencing nature’s modest charm. ‘nicoshootsthewild’ is a project documenting Nico’s wildlife encounters as she journeys around Singapore. Each encounter is a moment in between life’s routine, filled with wonder and serenity. Follow Nico and allow her to share with you these preserved moments of quiet wonder. “Let your feet slow down and your eyes wander for you never know when is your next wild encounter.” #nicoshootsthewild #shootthewild Read Less

In the hustle and bustle of city life, we often forget that we share our urban jungle with creatures of the wild. We allow the fuss of daily life stop us from experiencing nature’s modest charm.

THE MOMENT:
 
“A speck in white space may seem dull but when you take a closer look,
it’s unassuming presence is filled with countless grains of splendor. Just
like this speck, my encounters with the wild are moments of quiet wonder
filled with nature’s charm and beauty.”
                                                                                                                                                                                                   
 
 
COLLECTED IN FRAMES & LETTERS:
 
“I never knew when was my next encounter so as I journeyed in between
life’s routine, I allowed my eyes and legs to wander. Every encounter is
collected in spontaneous shots and recorded in words. Let your fingers
wander and browse through my collectionof moments.”
                                                                                                                                                                                                   
 
 
 
PRESERVED IN BAUBLES:
 
“A few months after I started shooting, I found a royal blue moth in eternal
slumber. It had a red body with black spots and it was absolutely beautiful.
It inspired me to collect and preserve the physical presence of my encounters.
Relive these moments of wonder with their beauty in your hands.”
                                                                                                                                                                                                    
 
 
 
CREATE YOUR MOMENTS:
 
“The seemingly mundane in-betweens of our lives can be filled with beautiful
and serene moments. Just as I allow my eyes and feet to wander, allow yourself
to experience the wonder and beauty of nature. Turn the lens, take a peek and
capture nature’s charm.”
