Duran has been on the site a few times before. But that doesn’t seem to put him off sharing his most recent work from a trip to Bangkok. Check it out.
“Soi Stories, Bangkok ” By Duran Levinson
The attached photos encompass a few highlights from a month spent in Bangkok Thailand, working on various film projects from fashion shoots, to documentary missions.
I recently spent 2 months in Asia, burning film and discovering new countries. In the first month I explored Thailand and was commissioned to shoot a few look books for clothing brands from Bangkok. In my spare time I was exploring all the sights that tourists don’t often visit or shoot. These photos encompass time I spent in the Khlong Toei ghetto, shooting gang members, to the “Soi Cowboy” a famous red-light district in Bangkok, where one of my look-book jobs was shot.
There is also a few street photos, from my missions with fellow film photographers, exploring the back alleys and nooks-and-crannies that Bangkok seems to be jammed with. The final photo is of my friend Anastaysia, which was shot in an amusement park in Bangkok, for the magazine “C-Heads”.
This project encompasses a small portion of my film work from the last few months spent traveling and shooting in Asia. I ended up shooting in Thailand, Hong Kong and South Korea. All the photos from the Thailand series were shot on a Pentax ME-Super and a Contax T2 on various film stocks, mainly Agfa 200ASA, because of its cheap price point and reliable quality.
I managed to pick up the Contax T2 theough Bellamy, and it has served me well in the last year that I have had it. I have recently upgraded to a Contax G2 with a 28mm Ziess Biogon 2.8, and cannot wait to put it through its paces properly.
