The Secret Map

Returns: Bangkok

It was nine years before the following images were taken that I first stepped off a plane and onto the Asian continent.

Disorientating yet intoxicating in the first week or so on my first visit, each return to South East Asia feels like a homecoming these days.

Tracing canals, boat-hopping, following train tracks or veering down small alleys in Bangkok can bring you a closer connection to daily life here and the people that make up the heart and soul of this metropolis.

This time, I was drawn to the Chinatown area that remains a defiantly unpolished part of a rapidly modernizing city.

As luck would have it, it just so happened to be at the same time as the lunar new year celebrations.

  1. Your photos are so evocative and really seem to capture the spirit of the place. I moved to London last year after four years in Bangkok – your photos brought back lots of happy memories. Thank you!
