pictures exhibited in Blank Wall gallery in Athens

If anyone happens to be in Athens over the next couple of weeks, stop by the Blank Wall gallery & have a look at their abandoned buildings exhibition. They chose two of my pictures to display & I'm curious how they turned out!

18/09/2018 - atlas obscura article

I wrote this pictorial for Atlas Obscura to tell the story of the Petch Siam Cinema in Sukhotai, northern Thailand.  I shot the series in late 2016 & it still stands out as  one of the most unique places that I've ever explored.

21/08/2018 - ghost tower work published in Hone Travel (Nine Australia)

I'm really happy with the solid feature with my work on Nine Travel in Australia once again.  It's always great to get featured in Nine as it is one of Oz's top news sites.  They did great work with the images, vid, & text to paint the full picture of a unique but somewhat dangerous spot in Bangkok.

14/08/2018 - the Roxy discoteque

I shot the once upscale Roxy Disco in Petchaburi, Central Thailand & came out with some decent images that I hope evoke the feeling of the very  kitschy late 20th century dance club that it was.

14/07/2018 - shot the ghost tower!

I was able to get special permission for entry & made it into Sathorn Unique (the 'ghost tower') on my birthday, July 9!  I was also able to speak with the building's owner about the ongoing issues with trespassers & have included some of Mr. Pansit's views in my writeup. All-in-all I hope it makes for an interesting read & series!  Thanks for viewing

06/07/2018 - interview feature in Guru Magazine

It was really cool to be interviewed by Bangkok Post's Guru Magazine in this week's edition regarding my current exhibition & ongoing work!

The full interview on the Bangkok Post's website is here.

03/07/2018 - Bangkok 101 Magazine Feature

I'm very happy to have a 6 page feature in Bangkok 101 Magazine this month! I picked up some copies from the publisher today & it looks great. In the digital age it's easy to forget that print is the medium for which photos have always been intended.  Really glad to be able to share my work and objectives with this readership.

24/06/2018 - antique junkyard story published on Bluewin

My abandoned junkyard series that I shot near my hometown in Arkansas was published in French & Italian on Bluewin, a large Switzerland-based news site that distributes stories in multiple languages.  They've featured a lot of my work & it's always great to have more exposure in mainland Europe!

19/06/2018 - Abandonia Exhibition reopens at Wishbeer the Vue in Bangkok!

SUPER excited  to be able to continue my exhibition at Wishbeer the Vue, starting Tuesday the 26th of June & running through July 24!  This venue is an excellent  location for display as it is a  chill riverside spot with superb food & drink.  We'll have an opening party next Tuesday the 26th with food & drink deals abound (and apparently a speech by me), so come out and enjoy some beer & good vibes and have a look at my work! 

07/06/2018 - Jam exhibition interview

The Jam website published an interview with me regarding my current exhibition, closing night party tomorrow...Jam's owner, Dhyan Ho, asked some great questions about my work which I answered as best I could! 

03/06/2018 - final week of exhibition!

This is the last week of my Abandonia photography exhibition at the Jam gallery in Bangkok!  Please stop by Jam and have a look if you can, we're having a closing party on Friday night (June 8), which should be a fun way to end the show.  Thanks to everyone who has come out to check out my work & especially thanks to the fantastic  humans who have purchased framed pictures!

**30/05/2018 - Exhibition Closing Party**

We'll be having a little shindig for the closing of my exhibition on June 8 at Jam in Bangkok from 7 to midnight.  I've sold several pictures & there are still many more up for sale, so stop by & have a look!  Jam is opened every night but Monday, open 6pm-midnight.  It's been wicked to be able to show my actual printed photos to the city at such a fantastic venue, this closing event will top off a great 3 weeks of sharing some of my exploration & photography experiences with so many fine folks!

27/05/2018 - exhibition announced in Guru

Was pleased to see the exhibition announcement printed in Bangkok Post's Guru Magazine!  I'm happy to have all the publicity for my exhibition that I can get.  It continues until a closing party on the evening of June 8 at Jam in Bangkok, so come on out & have a look!

Also really excited to have an upcoming full feature spread in BK 101 Magazine on my 'Abandonia' work in Thailand.  It's always cool to see my pictures in actual print as they're usually only seen in digital form.  Nowadays it's very easy to forget that print was the original & intended medium for displaying photographs  & also where they look the best!

26/05/2018 - the old customs house

I've visited the 130 year-old Customs House in Bang Rak district of central BKK multiple times in the past few years.  I was able to shoot some images of the interior recently as the building is set for renovation to become yet another upscale hotel.  

24/05/2018 - abandoned apartment feature published in Oz

Nine Travel in Australia published some of the better images from my abandoned apartment series that I shot in Samut Prakarn, just outside of Bangkok.  They also put up the drone footage that I shot while there.  I recently revisited the site with a reporter from Coconuts Bangkok to get some more aerial footage, as it is such a sprawling site that it demands a lot of shooting time in order to document the whole site...not sure I'm done with that one yet!

18/05/2018 - Got A LOT of awesome press for my Exhibition!

I'm so thrilled to have been interviewed by the popular local expat & English language site Coconuts Bangkok!  Ms. Laurel Touhy did great work in writing the article & I had a blast showing her around the abandoned apartments. 

I also got some press in BK Magazine, Khaosod English, and the Bangkok Post for my 3 week   Exhibition at JAM in Bangkok!  We hope to have a great turnout for the opening on May 18, so come on out if you're in town.  The show will run at JAM until June 8, when we'll have another party for the closing night
