After my initial discovery of my ability as a reportage photographer in Argentina in 2009, I then found myself confronted with a completely different kind of situation in Bangkok one year later. It was a time of political unrest in Thailand and the leading parties were in the midst of a power struggle, one of which being the Red Shirt group. During the course of six weeks I visited Bangkok three times, each time the level of tension in the city was increased. There had been riots, protests and deaths on the side of the police and the protesters and there was a real sense of danger to my personal safety, a definite increase in terms of how things were in Argentina.
