Portraits from a corner at the Hua Lumphong Train Station - In the trains
Updated: Mar 1
I was once asked, "why train station?" when I started to take portraits in the Hua Lumphong Train Station, Bangkok, Thailand - a train station I later describe it as "A train station frozen in time." Well, that probably best explains it.
It started with a simple reason as I live within convenient means to get to the station as traffic is something to factor seriously in Bangkok. As the collection of portraits started to grow, it becomes more or less a meditation to try to create images from the same location over and over with variations unique to each I photograph.
So the collection continues, in random order.

"It's one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it's another thing to make a portrait of who they are."
~ Paul Caponigro
"There are only twostyles of portrait painting: the serious and the smirk."
