I met this man by walking along a rail. He live near the rail wail and under the highway. His house is a old tuk tuk. This is the only thing he have. i was very impress to stay and talk with him. I wanted to realize a portrait, a portrait which would make him proud, regrettably I was not able to meet this man second time.

Salut Simon,
J'avais déjà commenté cette image si mes souvenir sont bons. Je l'avais trouver "très forte" ... aujourd'hui également. La dignité de cet homme sur cette photo en impose. Bravo pour ce portrait contextuel très touchant et pour ce travail de lumière qui ne semble pas être évident. Ce sera la deuxième réaction sur cette photo(?!). Beautiful my friend :)

Welcome back, Simon!
I checked your exif data and see that this pic goes back to 2005, from your remaining stock of fine BKK photos.
ANother extremely well executed environmental portrait - enough depth of field to reveal that he is indeed living underneath a freeway pass, and inside a tuktuk. Also your customary care in preserving, in fact emphasizing the dignity of your subjects, no matter how humble their circumstances. All in all a very "Pro" shot.
A+
