Inspired by 1974 and 1985 documentary films ‘Shocking Asia’, I was always more interested in exploration/photography of the Asian continent than any other. I was not looking to experience “not for the faint of heart” bizarre rituals or exotic sexual pleasures. But, fascinating culture of Far East, its charming people, and wonderful food pulled me like a magnet. Within last two years I visited Thailand, Cambodia, and India. The experience was so great that this year I went back to Southeast Asia and visited Vietnam and Laos. I have taken more than 3,000 photos and can’t wait to share some of them here at Memographer.com. Not all of the photos will be “shocking”, but, I hope that all of them will be interesting to you. Please subscribe for the updates, and together we will go on my 2012 Shocking Asia journey.
