Chiang Mai temple life


I became a bit obsessed with photographing monks while in Thailand.  Almost stalker-like. These gentle holy men are wonderful subjects, but they also lead surprisingly normal lives.  At first I was blown away seeing one enter a tattoo parlour in Bangkok or another hail a tuk-tuk, but you quickly get accustomed to how they blend into daily Thai life.

Here’s an peek into temple life in the northern city of Chiang Mai, where temple dogs often rule the roost and women are not as welcome 🙂
