These photos are set in and around the Chinatown District of Bangkok, an area that is renowned for it's jewelry shops, street food and labyrinths of markets.

With the surrounding districts having had an increasing number of shopping centres and high rises built in recent years, developers are eyeing up Chinatown's prime real estate, potentially threatening the fabric and identity of the area.

While photographing this work I was in Thailand as the nation began its annual year of mourning for the recently deceased King Bhumbibol. Up until his death the King was the world's longest serving monarch and was seen as a stabilizing and moral force in a country, that since 2014, has been ruled by a military junta.
