This week's blog consists of the second installment of my series "Faces of Thailand", derived from my large body of photos taken during my visit to Bangkok and the eastern province of Ubon in 2009. The longer I photograph, the more I believe that few photos stand alone as iconic images on their own. As I continue to assemble images together from my years of making photographs, I discover and clarify much more about my self and my vision by viewing photos together in a variety of relationships that may not have been consciously intended when created.
