Common Love reviewed in Landscapestories & Interview
My first project in this region, Common Love, is based in Bangkok, Thailand. It was intended as a dispassionate exploration of the city’s most common spaces. The book is presented with hardly any text or indication of where these places might be. In a way, this helps to the generic look and feel of these photographs. The photographs could have been taken anywhere but, for me, there is also a distint flavour of the vernacular Bangkok in them and of what I love about this city. In many ways while I was doing this project I was looking for innocence in a city that is internationally known for its lack of it.
