Exhibit: Cultural Encounters in Asia
This collection focuses on images from my recent visits to Asia, including China, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam in 2013 and 2014, plus a visit to India in 2015. The emphasis in this collection is on the people of the places that I visited. My main goal was to capture intimate or compelling moments with them.
I was born in Bangkok of missionary parents and spent much of my youth in Asia, including in a high school for missionary children that moved from Vietnam to Thailand and then to Malaysia. In 2012, forty-five years after my graduation from high school and departure from the region, I began revisiting this part of the world. I’m now using my deepening fascination with photography to focus and intensify my reawakened bond with the people and the places of my youth.
All the images in this exhibit are archival inkjet prints on archival paper. To purchase a print or pursue a question/comment, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
