“I do like let myself get wrapped up by places and time layers, searching among the images a face, a gesture, bring it to the surface and play with it.” Italian street photographer Riccardo Magherini tells The Phoblographer. His series, BKK, is the latest of this works that feature cities from Tokyo to Hong Kong, Florence and NYC.
Magherini has grown passionate about big cities since he first started in photography in 2011, on a trip to Tokyo Japan. His work in now represented in France, England, and the US, but his passion has always been the Asian metropolises. BKK focuses on the people of Talat Noi, a bustling neighborhood in Bangkok’s Chinatown. It’s “full of mechanical workshops, food stalls and street rusty second-hand car engines stack. A dense neighborhood, noisy and smoky, alive. It was the right choice.” Magherini says of the location.
