Pushy Street Vendors Bothered Me So Much… Until I Shot Them

In order to tell you this crazy story, we have to go back to May 2015. As you may have read, my brand new $1,600 L lens fell to the ground after I got it out of my backpack. The glass didn’t have any scratches, however, the focus was completely broken and all photos turned out blurry. Although it was a huge shock at first, I wanted to turn this moment around and “develop the negatives”. I quickly fell in love with this broken look and created a set about broken characters with a broken lens by a former broken soul called “Broken: Amsterdam”.

The Most Instagrammed Location of 2012 is an Airport in Bangkok

There are well over 100 million users on Instagram (assuming a quarter of them didn't just up and leave), and even though the typical Instagram photo stream consists of food and the family pet, there are certain places that show up more often than others. Times Square, The Eiffel Tower, Disneyland, the Bangkok Airport... wait... that last one seems out of place doesn't it?

As it turns out, no. Not only is Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport the number one most Instagrammed location of 2012, but Bangkok's massive shopping mall, Siam Paragon, took second. Only then does the list become populated by the locations you might expect to see.
