The Beauty Of A Thai Sunrise

Bangkok

Bio:

My name is Nicole, a German Girl living in Bangkok who has fallen in love with this city.  I’ve always loved photography and taking pictures.  The photos don’t need to be perfect when you take them, because one day they will be exactly what you need.  All the experiences I made in Bangkok are captured in my pictures and every single one tells my story.  That’s why I decided to set up my own blog.

Life as a third culture gives you such an amazing perspective and connection with nature and people around you.  You learn how privileged you are and learn to appreciate every given opportunity and make the most life has to offer.

Be The Sunshine In The Dark

Bangkok

Bio:

As the title says, “Be The Sunshine In The Dark”, this photo expresses the though that no matter what happens, there will always be someone or something that will pull you out of the darkness and for that we need everyone or everything to be themselves because in the end everyone matters.

Ploy Phutpheng, France

Grandma Ngao

Thailand

Bio:

Born in Thailand in 1989, I spent the first six years of my life between the rice fields of Isaan and the hectic streets of Bangkok.

The unpredictable aspect of life made me spend the next 20 years in the south of France, then in Paris, before I decided it was time for me to link up with my origins. So here I am, making the most of this double-culture, establishing connections between my two worlds.

“Connections”…

This is what Photography is about to me. Self-taught photographer, I am catching the hidden gems of my Siamese life through this double culture’s perspective by capturing moments, places, and faces that cross my path, in the “land of smiles” or elsewhere.

I’ve found in this turning point some unexpected resources of creativity, motivation and strength, which allow me to share with you today, some photographic scenes & short stories.

Gary Dupree, Singapore

The Relaxing Monks

Bangkok

Bio:

Two of my great passions in life are travel and photography.  I believe that travel broadens one’s views of the world.  Experiencing other cultures, meeting people fro other communities and other countries and seeing the beauty, and sometimes ugliness, of the world has helped me understand that all of our lives are at once interconnected and individual.  It has made me better appreciate my own home and culture as well as that of the people I’ve met and the lands I’ve seen and I have become a much more tolerant person as a result.  Through my photography I seek to document my own personal experiences, to capture scenes and events as I see them and to share with others the beauty and diversity of the world I’ve seen.  As the images of other photographers have inspired me to explore the world.  I hope my own contributions will inspire others to do the same.

Bio:

I am Darcy, a 13 year old photographer who is always looking for the opportunity to take a good photo, whether it be on a busy street in the bustling city of Hong Kong, where I lived for eight years of my life, or a quiet landscape photo on Tanzania’s beautiful plains where I lived for four years, or even a portrait of a vendor on the busy streets of Bangkok where I have just recently moved to.  I am a third culture kid who loves to experience new places, foods, smells and cultures and I love to capture all through the lens of my camera.
