Visarut Sankham: Behind Tin Walls

Visarut Sankham: Behind Tin Walls
International Photography Grant 2019

“Behind Tin Walls” is a project documenting the lives of migrant working living in three different campsites of Bangkok. Mostly migrant workers from Cambodia, these workers occupy these temporary structures as they build Bangkok’s booming luxury condominium industry. Their own living conditions are of stark difference, raising health and safety concerns for the workers and their families. This set of photos shows the parallel world in the shadows beneath the rising towers of Bangkok, the ‘City of Angels’.

Visarut Sankham – independent photographer based in Chiangmai, Thailand.
