We currently live in a world where the moment is being redefined. 

We sit in front of a mysterious and beautiful temple we have travelled far to see, the monks are chanting and we know we are experiencing something special and we then capture it with our camera. And there is nothing wrong with wanting a memory of that. Even though as a photographer I sometimes missed a shot to really breathe in the experience.

However imagine we are at a party. We are telling story about traveling to a far away land to see a temple. The story may resonate with some so much they one day visit that place and remember you, or they may forget your story in an instant. Either way your experience remains yours. 

Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without. -Buddha

Could you imagine, after you tell the story you then go to each individual and ask….so do you like or dislike my story? The story then is in danger of being told for ‘likeability’ more than the amazing experience that shaped you. And it then is at risk of not resonating with the people who could of been deeply inspired by it. 

My latest images are from Baan Dam, Chiang Rai Thailand. The amazing artist Thawan Duchanee vision just blew my mind. Part temple, part museum, part unique unto itself. Also there are some details from Nakamanda, in Krabi. A beautiful resort that is right on the sea. You can eat breakfast while looking at the ocean before a day of adventures.
