I got asked by the BBC recently to document the widening wealth gap in Asia for an online photogallery illustrating the subject. They only used nine of the hundreds of images i took walking around the city, but was really happy with the rest of my work from my shooting days, so i am sharing them with you now!
I hope you guys find these as uplifting as i did while i was shooting them. These people don’t have much but they’re extremely happy! They were all very kind and accommodating and a lot of them (especially the kids) actually asked for their photographs to be taken. Their homes, as ever, are fascinating to behold.
The street photography workshop i took with Luis Liwanag something like a week before this assignment also helped LOADS. I highly recommend giving it a try, for people who want to learn about photography or people who think they’ve done it all. Hours of fun, and much to learn! I still have one session to go!
On an entirely separate slightly ironic note, i am going to be visiting the US for the next three weeks. See you all when i get back, i’ll most certainly have interesting photographs from my trip!
