VOL. 6: BEST BEFORE

The Slow Press Vol. 6: BEST BEFORE features 9 rich food stories centered around time and change, written, designed, illustrated, and photographed by The Slow Press team and our amazingly talented contributors over the course of 2023.

Time waits for no fruit, grain, or bread—it isn't always easy to divine an expiration date without the aid of supermarket tags. And yet, when it comes to what we eat, waiting can be either a fruitful endeavour (producing delicious sake) or an unwise choice (inviting mold onto your bread). 

Mediate on and explore these tensions faced in our relationships between food and time with us as you read about: preserving familial relationships with salt, frustratingly slow changes in food quality for migrant workers, secret rice saving societies, fruit ripening, canned food, and more!

What could a foraging Singapore look like? What did a foraging Singapore look like?

By The Moon and The Tides is an exploration and reimagining of Singapore's relationship with the practice of foraging, perhaps the oldest subsistence pattern of man. Following The Slow Press Vol. 5: BITTERSWEET, this risograph zine will exclusively be launched at SGABF2023.

We spoke to three foragers: self-taught urban forager Esmonde Luo, Syazwan of Wan's Ubin Journal, and Firdaus of Orang Laut SG. Through these conversations, we scrabble to uncover the past, present, and future of foraging in highly-urbanised Singapore.
