Sometimes you see things that you just feel compelled to photograph. When New Zealand born, Tokyo based architectural photographer Cody Ellingham decided to travel through Thailand last year he had no intention of creating a photo book of his trip, but as soon as he arrived in Bangkok he changed his mind. “Suddenly I was assaulted by these visions of the city at night. There’s a certain image that goes with Thailand — beautiful beaches, secluded lagoons, that sort of stuff — it’s a holiday destination. But when you get off the beach and explore Bangkok, you’re faced with this concrete jungle,” Cody explains.
