Polaroid 17, Lost monk

#apolaroidaday / 17 – Chinatown, Bangkok

INSTANT_INCIDENTS141-0

This monk was completely lost in Bangkok’s Chinatown – I spoke to him and asked him where he was going. He said the “monks’ hospital”. He had walked from the central train station and was nowhere near the hospital in question. The 93 year-old monk had come from the country side to get treated but had no idea how to get to the hospital from the station – eventually, a local lady took him to the hospital by taxi… Polaroid print from 6×6 polaroid back, 2008 © Cedric Arnold
