I’ve found a stash of old colour prints from over 20 years ago. I wondered what they’d be like if I scanned them and reworked them in monochrome.
These were taken in the area known as The Golden Triangle, where Thailand, Laos and Myanmar meet.
This is the border crossing from Thailand to Myanmar (Burma). The queue at the left hand side of the first picture is made up mainly of tourists waiting to have their passports stamped and be given a visa to enter Myanmar. Those walking towards us are en route to Thailand.
Women pushing empty carts were carefully scrutinised before being allowed to cross in single file through a rusty gate into Thailand.
I wonder what this border crossing is like now in 2020 and if women are still pushing empty carts.
