Vanishing Bangkok : The Changing Face of the City Hardback
This stunning black-and-white photographic book takes us on a journey through the forgotten back streets and hidden neighbourhoods of Bangkok revealing the fragile beauty and faded charm of the city that is about to disappear forever beneath a tidal wave of development.
From the splendid old Customs House perched on the banks of the Chao Phraya River to the vibrant communities of Chinatown and sleepy canals lost in time, it evokes a city that despite successive waves of modernisation still boasts an extraordinarily rich and diverse cultural heritage. Shot over a five-year period using a large format Linhof film camera, the 94 exquisite photographs and extensive captions are accompanied by a short text detailing Davies' personal odyssey.
His words shed light on both the people he meets and the history of this fast-changing metropolis.
