Thread of Light; Thailand


Photo taken by n23artI have suffered from depression most of my life, although I didn’t realise it until my mid 20’s. Most of the time it’s manageable but there’s been a few times in my life when it has hit me very hard. I’m from the UK but I’ve been living in Asia for the last five years. I’ve had work published and exhibited in the US and Asia and I’ve been taking photographs in one form or another for over 20 years. I tend to lean towards surrealism and usually I’m not interested in capturing reality because it doesn’t interest me. 

About this photo: Shot in Bangkok, Thailand in 2008. I was looking through the window of a hospital room and the sun was setting. It looked beautiful so I grabbed a point and shoot camera that I had with me and took a few pictures. I did some editing in Photoshop to add some emphasis to the sky and simulate the pollution of Bangkok. Even with all the darkness and grime, some light still manages to shine through.
