On the iron rails of the Orient

This collection of pictorial essays charts a photographer’s explorations, often off the beaten tourist track, across four Asian territories – Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and Tibet. On the Iron Rails of the Orient is not just a travelogue, but a deeply personal account of the realities of living in a region that is flourishing in newly found prosperity, but at the same time, trying to come to grips with a turbulent history.

Seen through the photographic lens, these four train journeys capture the pulse of the Orient in the 21st century. And as this collection of pictures shows, it is a reality characterized by the frenetic and the slow, the awe-inspiring and the crushingly dull, opulent excess and grinding poverty.
