      Bangkok Is a Paradise

      December 12, 2012

      About a year and a half ago, photographer Theo Cottle sparked our "Paradise" series with his idylic pictures from his hometown of Bristol. A few months later, he followed those up with a bunch of graphic scenes he captured in Berlin.

      This time around, he sent us some pictures from his recent trip to Bangkok, and I think I can safely say these are the grimiest of the lot. Or the most paradisiacal, if you're deranged. To each his own, I guess.

      See more of Theo's work here.

      Does your town or city qualify for paradise status? Feel free to send your pitches to ukphotoblog@vice.com. We won't bite.
