Street Life in South and South East Asia


Of all the places in the world, Asia would have to be one of the most dynamic and interesting. With a history that dates back thousands of years, it is now at a point where modern culture is meeting with a traditional way of life creating a unique diversity.


This book is a visual journey through the streets of India, North and South Vietnam and Cambodia. Taken entirely on an iphone 5, these images are raw and spontaneous snapshots of everyday life, depicting the people and culture of lesser travelled places.
