Bangkok / Thailand
Street art in the district of Ratchatewi was my inspiration for this photo essay. Graffiti on the walls of partially demolished buildings, and in the laneways of the neighbourhood just a few feet from a busy khlong. This is what I love about Bangkok, it's a living city with a dynamic and evolving culture.

Photography for Travellers
Ewen's guiding principles are simple...
"Go slow. Get closer. Look for the light."
"Photography is about showing other people how to see, to share the beauty of life. It's not a job, it's a lifestyle. We only get one lifetime, one chance to add some light into the world. Photography competitions are mostly silly. Cats are excellent."
