Taken during Thailand’s worst flooding in six decades, these following photographs are a visual exploration of the encounter between land and water. As these two worlds collide, I wanted to show the adaptation of those caught in the middle to maintain and continue their daily lives.
Shanghai, head of the Chinese Dragon, is in a frantic run towards fierce capitalism, especially noticeable in the boom in Shanghai’s building industry. Tons of buildings are raised – similar in height, colour and design – repetitive in their poor and simplistic design.
The civil war in Burma has a long history of 60 years. Hundreds and thousands of Burmese have been flooding the 7 refugee camps in Mae Sot since 25 years ago.
Young Libyans holding kalashnikovs are on guard duty and the only light illuminating the night’s complete darkness are headlights. Checkpoints start from Tunisia – Libya border to Tripoli city.

This is a follow-up to the Fuji X10 Initial Impressions post I recently wrote. This post focuses on using the Fuji X10 for street photography. I quite enjoy the discipline of street photography.
Hardworking, humble and honest. It was raining cats and dogs , but he still held his briefcase tightly. That of course shows you the importance of a day.
“Photographing people on the streets is like shooting fish underwater.” – that’s our quote of the week compliments of Thierry Brulé, after attending our Street Photography Workshop.
The Fuji X10 was recently released here in Singapore and I managed to get my hands on a set. It has been a long time since I bought a compact digital camera and I have been looking out for a general purpose carry everywhere camera for quite a while now.
