China is two-faced. There are the polluted cities, and then there’s the beautiful heart worth saving, the side that Suchet shows. I seek places in China that prove, despite its major pollution troubles, it still has its mysterious beauty, photos that reveal the diversity of that vast, ancient land and its kind people.
After stumbling upon Suchet Suwanmongkol’s exceptional photography website, I noticed many photo galleries from China. They summon dreamy past life memories.
Suchet is a hobby photographer. His work is exceptional, his landscapes transcend time. For him, traveling the world is about capturing landscapes and peoples in the most stunning light. He shares what he finds, how he sees it.
Suchet was born in beautiful Chiang Mai in Thailand, but loves China’s culture and that it has “so many interesting and fascinating places to visit.” Xinjiang is his favorite. Xinjiang is an interesting place, geographically, wedged between “the former Soviet states of Central Asia, Afghanistan, Russia, and Mongolia,” writes the BBC. It’s covered in steppes, mountains, and desert. It’s home to the Uyghurs.
Suchet, who wields a Hasselblad H4D 60 camera, is heading to South Africa next, and then of course, “back to Xinjiang again.”
