Up in the Air: We Went Back Again!

2012-11-20

This year we visited the same country and city twice. Where is this city? It’s none other than Bangkok, Thailand.

I’ve been to Bangkok, Thailand a couple of times before, so I know what to expect, especially at the airport. As such, it can be a challenge to photograph a location that you’ve photographed a couple of times before. But at the same time, this is where the fun begins. It makes you look at things from a fresh perspective.

Earlier this year I wrote about my last shooting opportunity in Bangkok, which was at the Bangkok International Airport, also known as Suvarnabhumi Airport. You can check out the story “here”: http://www.lomography.com/magazine/locations/2012/04/26/the-golden-triangle-saying-goodbye-to-bangkok-thailand

The last time I was there I used a Black & White film to capture the sights of the airport.

But this time I chose to use a color slide film to give a different perspective. Knowing that I’m shooting with a slide film, I deliberately looked for new features and decorations that would contrast my other album.

As expected, to keep things fresh and relevant, an airport decor would be changed regularly. I was lucky to see some new additions.

While I did see some regular fixtures, it was good to see some new displays at the departure area.

After the immigration, who could miss the iconic statue and art display, which has become a ‘must-have’ photo for many tourists.

It was good that we were able to reach the airport fairly quickly again as it gave me ample time to shoot my last roll there.

We didn’t meet any major traffic jams other than a getting out from out hotels driveway. So we were pleased that our journey was smooth, which was a great way to end our short but wonderful city holiday.

  • Doug DuBois on My Last Day at Seventeen

    Doug DuBois on My Last Day at Seventeen

    Doug DuBois spent five summers photographing the small neighborhood of Russell Heights in Ireland to capture the essence of coming of age: the inevitable loss of youth and the imminent transition into adulthood. Those four years resulted in his latest book, My Last Day At Seventeen. The book is a visual tale told through a collection of photographs and gives an alternative perspective through a comic narrative around the same subject. This creative combination of two distinct narratives in one book not only works wonderfully in visual terms; it also serves as an essential tool that lets the reader dig deeper into the story being told, making one go back to the book over and over again, yet from a new perspective, every single time.

    Self to the World: The Photography of Leanne Surfleet

    A self-portrait may take root in confidence, extreme shyness or alternate bouts of each. Leanne Surfleet goes through this kind of fluctuation when the camera is all eyes. The attraction—as far as we’re concerned—is the mix of uncertainty and a kind of quiet poise. And here and there, a flash of skin that is more a mystery than full-on revelation. Even Surfleet’s portraits of other people have the same hushed invite, as if to say questions are encouraged. There we took our cue.

    Vicuna's Travel Stories | Sunrise in the Desert

    Burkina Faso is a country that has three different climatic areas. It's mostly a land of the Sahel, very dry but with some vegetation and a short rainy season. The very south of the country is already in the tropical zone but the north still belongs to the Sahara desert. I had the opportunity to visit this area and witness a magical moment: a sunrise in the desert.

    It had been five years since my last visit to the Côte d'Azur in France. During this period, I took to film photography again. And so for my return, I was looking forward to capturing, with my handy film cameras, some of that special light and blue sea that had drawn so many artists to the Riviera.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Spirit of Jogja

    It is the marvel of Java, the cultural center of Indonesia: Yogyakarta, or, as we assimilated locals call it, Jogja! Jogja is full of historic sites and exudes a very adventurous yet welcoming spirit. It is a true multireligious melting pot that has seen kings and sultans come and go, and religions introduced and either went or stayed. Time has been gentle on Jogja. It's one of my most favorite cities in Asia.
