This photo album is a collection of photos from various fieldtrips to Asia between 2008 and 2011.
These images are not perfect; but they are spontaneous. They are taken in these little moments between the official fieldwork and traveling.
For me they are snapshots: not polished or "photoshopped" but truly authentic. In my opinion, their beauty lies in the moment not in their perfection. They portrait the little discoveries and insights I could gain by traveling and conducting research in Asia.
The photos are ordered from public spaces to private spaces,
- urban landscape,
- nature & landscapes,
- traditional and modern architecture
Then becoming more detailed on:
- people's activities,
- food & restaurants,
- homes & interiors and
I hope this collection gives an idea of contemporary Asian lifestyle away from stereotypes and touristic icons.
