Inside Out, in CHANG DAO// NorthernThailand

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by allan dransfield

Lu Gau was a local farmer who spoke pretty good English and invited me to stay with him and his family for a couple of days. I was sharing a barn with his son, directly over the chicken coop. The kitchen was outdoors, obviously - as is most stuff in Thailand. Even when your indoors - you’re outdoors. Everything is made out of natural materials (mainly bamboo) and open air which really blurs the boundaries between indoors and out. I stayed on the farm for 2days and used it as a base while i explored the surrounding mountains and hill tribe villages. In the shot Lou is preparing morning tea.

Location: Karen Hilltribe Village, Chiang Dao, near Chiang Mai, Thailand
