Award Winner | Photo of the Day | June 20, 2010
This was taken in Chatuchak, the biggest flea market of south-east Asia, in Bangkok, Thailand on March, 2010. It is a place full of wonders. A place with objects of all times. If you go there over the week ends, it is packed with people. The best day to go there is on the Friday, when the place is deserted and seems only to unveil its secrets to the curious souls around.
Photographer: Aude-Emilie Dorion (Paris, France) Registered Photographer
Freelance photographer and writer Aude-Emilie Dorion was born in France in 1980. Sensitive to the effect of globalization on modern cultures and the inequity of the world’s economic development, tensions and transformations are at the heart of her creative work. Working in the live performance industry, photography from time to time became the best vector of communication. Aude-Emilie loves artistic photography but has always been attracted by social documentary and photojournalism. When the Art becomes more social and political it reaches one of its primary functions: raising public awareness, acting as a catalyst for political changes.
