This is a personal farewell to Bangkok, and a spoof on Fashion photography, I spent 4 years of my life in Bangkok  A multilayered, multiculutural, quirky city that thought me so much.
 
I met Anna Vornoff, a performance artist with a crazy streak. She was leaving too. And she had designed this quirky costume for herself with Louis Vuitton logo printed all over it. I thought it was perfect. Shot mostly on Rama IV Road, which is parallel to the world renowned Sukhumvit Road. Because only those who live in Bangkok, go paralell to Sukhumvit.

Every soi (street) corner has these 'motorbike taxi' stands. The each street is about 2 kms long, bikes are a popular mode of  transport from the mouth to your building. And of course, to weave through the crazy Bangkok traffic.
