Self Made: Creative Lives in Southeast Asia


Self Made: Creative Lives in Southeast Asia is a pocket-sized book of interviews edited by Singaporean writer, Steph Peh.

Artists, architects, designers, photographers and filmmakers — all based in Southeast Asia — share their stories and describe how they navigate terrains of creative uncertainty while also attempting to 'keep the lights on’.

To learn more about Self Made, we recommend listening to Steph Peh’s interview with Monocle 24.
