About Me

I am a stills photographer based in Bangkok, Thailand.  My work is primarily concerned with social documentary, candid photojournalism, urban/art photography. My preference is for working with the traditional medium of photographic film, which I also develop and print. I do also sometimes shoot digitally, typically with a hybrid workflow between the two.

I have never intended to sell any of my work directly to anyone  through this website but there have been instances when requests for purchasing prints or the rights to my images have arisen. Thus, all images on this website are usually available as prints or for other uses.

I can produce modern, hybrid process inkjet prints but also traditional optical (analogue) prints done on enlargers in a darkroom. Various sizes and paper types are possible. I generally hand sign and post them via courier to anywhere.  If you would like to ask me about prints or the rights to use any of my work elsewhere, I'm usually fairly agreeable and you can contact me at admin@chromacomaphoto.com in the first instance.

Any and all funds received for prints belonging to the series 'Unseeing Thailand' are donated directly to the charity featured in the work.

Everything that has ever made sense to me about photography is covered in the quote below:

"What I write here is a description of what I have come to understand about photography, from photographing and from looking at photographs. A work of art is that thing whose form and content are organic to the tools and materials that made it. Still photography is a chemical, mechanical process. Literal description or the illusion of literal description, is what the tools and materials of still photography do better than any other graphic medium. A still photograph is the illusion of a literal description of how a camera saw a piece of time and space. Understanding this, one can postulate the following theorem: Anything and all things are photographable. A photograph can only look like how the camera saw what was photographed. Or, how the camera saw the piece of time and space is responsible for how the photograph looks. Therefore, a photograph can look any way. Or, there's no way a photograph has to look (beyond being an illusion of a literal description). Or, there are no external or abstract or preconceived rules of design that can apply to still photographs. I like to think of photographing as a two-way act of respect. Respect for the medium, by letting it do what it does best, describe. And respect for the subject, by describing as it is. A photograph must be responsible to both." Garry Winogrand Austin, Texas 1974
