TITLE: "The Well of Souls"
Wat Rong Khun, better known as "White Temple" is located in the city of Chiang Rai, in the Northern Thailand.
It is a bizarre and particular Buddhist and Hindu temple, a real work of contemporary art designed by the artist Chalermchai Kositpipat.
The main building at the the Temple is reached by crossing a little bridge over a small lake, the bridge of "the cycle of rebirth", in front of this bridge are hundreds of outreaching hands that symbolize unrestrained desire. The bridge proclaims that the way to happiness is by foregoing temptation, greed, and desire.
I used to change focus by using a long exposure trying to give life to all these hands, like if they was living, giving the observer a sense of disorder, fear, anguish
