Watch this: A Photographer in Chinatown
It was just over a year ago here when filmmaker and journalist Bradley Cox shared a short video of the Friese-Greene Club in Bangkok.
The video received a favorable response, so Cox thought it would be just swell if I posted another.
Here, the maker of the Peabody Award-winning documentary Who Killed Chea Vichea?, presents another view of Bangkok. It's part of his ongoing Long Story Short series of videos.
In A Photographer in Chinatown, Cox turns his lens on another lensman, Bangkok-based photojournalist Yvan Cohen, who has lived in Asia since 1991 and covers assignments all over the region.
Cohen has a "passion for shooting in Chinatown, which he's been doing for a number of years now," Cox says. The video is a look at the way Cohen works and his motivations for doing so.
The YouTube version of the video is presented above, but it's also on Vimeo, which is better looking, but is also more dependent on a reliable Internet connection.
