After publishing Cecile’s pictures of treeplanters in Australia last month, we are happy to present this week her new series shot in Bangkok. We really liked those beautiful pictures, full of life, funny and somehow a little tragic at the same time.

Welcome to bangkok, largest city of Thailand, where everyday 8 million people try to find their way in one massive and city-wide traffic jam. Daring taxis, old buses, motorbikes with 4 people on it and colourful tuk-tuks are what you can expect if you dare to venture yourself on the road. Definitely an overwhelming experience for unprepared tourists but valuable to get a real feel of the city.
