It is no secret that Singapore stands as one of the cleanest cities in the world, with hefty fines in place for spent chewing gum littered anywhere other than a bin and irresponsibly trashed items.

French photographer Chris Morin-Eitner’s Once Upon A Time Tomorrow collection reinvents metropolitan scenes as concrete jungles morph into literal jungles amid flourishing flora and fauna.

The annual French festival runs from Apr 8 – May 21 this year with French cultural offerings at various locations. Opening weekend kicks off with an open air screening of The Artist at Gardens By The Bay on Saturday and a gourmet picnic at Singapore Botanic Gardens on Sunday.
