Portraits from a corner at the Hua Lumphong Train Station - Platforms and around

Updated: 5 days ago

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.
