I was not happy at all taking the shot. It didn’t seem fair to the old man. I was traveling with a German guy for a couple of days making my way from North Thailand to Indonesia, stopping a few days in Singapore. He urged me to take the shot, with absolutely no understanding of my hesitation. I wasn’t cut out for taking street shots from natures side. Too shy and way to many considerations. It was a long and slow process for me to overcome the barriers through the early twenties.

The photograph is hand signed and dated on the mat (passepartout) by Jesper Sø.
The frame is made in Denmark using FSC certified wood (wood from sustainable forestry) and arrives to you without glass. Not because of the easier shipping, but because I believe photographs should be enjoyed without the visual disturbing light reflections on the glass.
The mat (passepartout) is cut from PH neutral carton.
The digital print is made on Fujicolor Crystal Archive Paper Supreme. As the name suggests it has good archival abilities. That being said, nothing stays unmarked of time and light, so the image has a sort of build in change over time, as any other photographic image has.
