Building People

This project was going to be about buildings or rather partially built buildings.
In 1997 the great Asian recession hit Bangkok very badly leaving a huge amount of building projects in various unfinished states across the city. From almost complete towerblocks to concrete skeletons, I intended to explore and document these structures which lie in wait until they are either finished or demolished.
Everything changed when I began to visit these buildings and I met the wonderfully resiliant and resourceful people who have made them sites for businesses or in some cases homes.
I always wish to show people in their best light and I hope to have achieved that with this collection of images. I have always returned with prints.
