Just a bunch of images I've taken that needed somewhere to chill. If you like my work, please consider getting yourself a postcard Printhands.com
If you have seen me since I returned back from Thailand I have probably shown you my work from the Vegetarian Festival in Phuket. I have been sat on these images for a long time, not knowing what to do with them. If I'm honest I wanted their debut to be in the physical form … Continue reading Vegetarian Festival Face Piercings Phuket
Chiang Mai is one of the most interesting places I've had the pleasure of visiting. Whilst travelling S/E Asia I had the fortune of being able to work remotely for a company in New Zealand. Often times I would appreciate being alone whilst working which can be difficult when you're in a new place and … Continue reading Guest Post: Chiang Mai in Black and White Film
Thetsakan kin che or "The Vegetarian Festival" is celebrated all over Thailand, but not as intensely as it is in Phuket. For nine days the majority of the island is vegetarian. Everybody is dressed in white and the temples are heaving with prayers and the occasional sound of firecrackers. Before I post about the more … Continue reading The Food of the Phuket Vegetarian Festival
Despite public appearances of acceptance, the usage of trans women as targets of humiliation paints a slightly sinister picture suggesting underlying distaste which I felt the need to share.
One of the worst things is everybody is trying to get as drunk as possible whilst suffering from delicate egos and trying to maintain a delusional image that they have of themselves.
2016 was a bad year for a lot of people for a lot of different reasons. I can safely say that my 2016 did not end positively but what I can say about 2016 is that it was the first year that somebody besides myself took my photography work seriously. It was the first year … Continue reading 80 Images to Remind Myself That 2016 Wasn’t Bad
I bought my girlfriend a camera that she never used four years ago for her birthday, I seldom used it and it stayed either on a shelf or at the bottom of a suitcase. Getting the prints was like stepping back in time. It's an odd sensation having taken images over a period of years … Continue reading It Took Me Four Years to Use a Single Roll of Film
Everybody loves a skilled stripper, whether they're polishing a metal pole with their crotch or peeling paint off a surface, everybody can appreciate effort when they see it. I thought at the time that Bangkok was the seediest place in the world, but I was wrong, Patong outshines Bangkok in every sense. From Ping Pong … Continue reading Poles, Filth and Beer: Patong is a Paradise.
Before packing my bags to Thailand I was aware of the fact that I had next to no jabs, especially the rabies vaccine which can be pretty expensive, I told myself that I wouldn't touch any animals because I'd be screwed if they bit me. Fast forward a few days and I'm picking up every … Continue reading Street Cats & Street Dogs of Thailand
Writing words on an article is super important, it fills out the space between the title of the article and the images shown below. I'm currently filling a void that needs to be filled, like the void in your life, staring blankly at a screen salivating at the thought of lush images of an island … Continue reading Koh Phi Phi is Paradise
If Bangkok is a whore then Chiang Mai is the religious sister who ran away to follow her faith, with 300 temples in the city limits it's impossible to walk anywhere without Buddhism crossing your path. Every street has several temples, every other building has it's own personal shrine to Buddha that they provide with fresh food … Continue reading Chiang Mai is a Paradise
Koh Phi Phi was the worst hit Thai island in the 2004 tsunami, the island was wiped clean, it's hard to believe when visiting the island today because the vibrancy of the entire settlement is breathtaking, albeit catered to tourist's with drinks offers and beer pong on the menu it's difficult to tell that something … Continue reading The Fire Dancers of Koh Phi Phi
Getting older you doubt yourself, you think, 'am I still cool'? The worst way to test this is to get completely fucked up after spending an entire day in the Thai sun, joining in a fire dancers fire limbo and standing up when you're half way through. He wasn't cool, he was an old fool … Continue reading Stupid, Drunk, Sunburned and Burnt
Donna and I knew we wanted to see elephants in Thailand, the problem was finding somewhere ethical, we didn't want to ride an elephant but we did want to get close, riding an elephant is one step away from using them as circus animals and it's cruel as fuck, they're beautiful intelligent creatures that deserve … Continue reading Tums Elephant Santuary Tour in Chiang Mai is Worth Every Baht
