A blog about food in Thailand
and elsewhere.


Posted date:  January 11, 2007

This evening I was fortunate enough to meet the Magnum photojournalist Abbas. Abbas is one of the 50 photographers shooting for the Thailand: 9 Days in the Kingdom project, and is one of the minority of 23 who still insists on using film (as opposed to digital). Abbas usually shoots in black and white, but he will be shooting in colour for this book. He will be taking photos in Pattani, a province in Thailand’s troubled, Muslim-dominated south.

Incidentally, a movie is also being made of the 9 Days… project that will document the photographers at work. The filmmakers asked each photographer if he or she would mind being filmed, and Abbas, feeling certain that this would cramp his style, wrote on the form that he is “unfriendly and difficult”!

For an amazing slide show of the events that Abbas has documented, click on the first mention of his name above.

Abbas is a great photographer. There is some great info on him at wikipedia.


Hi Austin. Long time no comment. I’d kind of given up on blogging because I rather just post pictures, on flickr.

But it’ s my part of my job now to blog (I know it sounds weird) so I’m visiting old haunts again (and I added you on it‘s blogroll.

I think your pictures have gotten even better (I doubt it’s only the D200’s effect) and I’m positively jealous at you being a great photographer’s assistant in Phi-Phi. Can’t wait to see how that project pans out. (I’m invited at the opening party Sunday but can’t make it; too bad, would have been nice to meet you IRL).

The action taken to local and national disasters is noble but it’s a damn shame that so many people take advantage of the sad situations.

I mean everytime there is an earthquake, a flood, an oil spill – there’s always a group of heartless people who rip off tax payers.

This is in response to reading that 4 of Oprah Winfreys “angels” got busted ripping off the system. Shame on them!
