Portraits of Southeast Asia

These are the people — the culture — the stories of Southeast Asia through my camera’s lens.

Here you’ll find intimate, black and white, portrait-styled photographs of Thai tattoo artists, Malaysian gangsters, Cambodian farmers and Singaporean chefs. It’s a glimpse into people’s lives a world away. People whose lives might be very different from yours. People who might not have a voice. People who might not have dollar to their name, clean water or family.

Forget what you know, or think you know. Dive in. Reflect.
