Faces of Bangkok
In my experience, Thais are among the easiest people in the world to photograph. In most cases a smile and friendly "Tie Roop Die My?" ("Can I take a picture") are all it takes to get people to say yes. Oftentimes they would smile, but some people were comfortable let me take a photo of a neutral, or even scowling, pose. Below are some of the many portraits I made of people on the streets of Thailand.
I shoot most of my photos in color, but I found that converting them to black and white allowed me to remove a lot of the colorful distractions in the photos and focus on the people and their faces.
