This portrait series shows construction workers and street vendors in Bangkok. The colourful head coverings, scarves and masks primarily serve these hard working people as protection against injury, strong sunlight and air pollution. By doing so, they create mostly unknowingly fascinating combinations of fabrics, colours and patterns.
The photo series was first shown in October 2019 at the Goethe Institute in Porto Alegre, Brazil.
