Travels around Asia Increasing the diversity of a portfolio - Dreamstime
While in the past I have written blogs that help provide some thought provoking subjects to help the photographer look at things differently or to offer an engaging topic, this time, however, my article will look at the beauty and uniqueness of Asia. For those in the western world who have not been to Asia, each country is quite unique in their food, culture, people and architecture. The one commonality between them is these cultures and countries are different from the West. While some can say there is a Western influence occurring in the larger cities and this is true, when you travel to areas located farther away from the large cities you feel at times like you have stepped into another world.
Unfortunately, there are some in the Western world who do not appreciate the beauty of the Eastern culture. I hope through my pictures attached to this blogAsian Themed Picture Collection I am managing will open the eyes of western world to another culture that is so different from their own. Diversity is the key to success. The world is getting smaller so it is important to look beyond your own.
I am currently living in Shanghai China and trying to see as much as I can during my time here. Some may say that this metropolitan city is really not China, you have to go beyond this to really see China. I would agree with this but would say there are areas within Shanghai that will expose you to something unique. Through exploration, I will capture a photo diary of a culture that is unique and beautiful that many will never have the opportunity to see.
