I t is tricky to photograph people. Especially in Europe, people rarely like to be photographed. In other countries, you can photograph everyone in a public space, whether they like it or not - but would you really want that? Personally, I hate being photographed. My family is missing about a decade of my life in photos because at some point I figured out how to avoid cameras completely. Ironically, what I love the most is take photos of people. I'm not a fan of landscape photography, and street art gets boring. But people always tell a story. In Thailand, people want this story to be told. I've never been invited before to take photos. Here I was encouraged. I was welcomed. And people were really happy when I showed them the results on the tiny display. I don't think I've ever progressed as much in photography as I did in this country.
