A postcard from my archives

Well, this is the time for well wishing all around… and I could not resist to use this picture of Bai Ling I took a couple of years ago while working on the set of the movie Beautiful Country on a beach near Nha Trang in Vietnam.
Also to remind you that is the best time of the year for nice outdoor light around Asia.
Since that Bai Ling has done a lot better on the pages of Playboy magazine… with another photographer.
That will be my new year postcard for you all…

Exhibition in Luang Prabang

Works from the book: Luang Prabang Watercolors by Somboon Phoungdorkmai that I published just a year ago are on show at the beautiful traditional house of a friend (Francis Engelmann) in Luang Prabang (Laos). The exhibition will go until early February in this World Heritage city and the house is next the Elephant restaurant. Original artworks and 'giclée' prints are on sale as well as the book.

New book on Luang Prabang

Luang Prabang in Northern Laos is a former Royal capital and a favorite destination for an ever increasing number of people. It's a charming little town doted with numerous pagodas and tucked between the Mekong and Nam Kan rivers. It has been a World Heritage site for the past 10 years. This small picture book (priced $16) is an intrduction to the place and a perfect small gift to bring back. Pictures by Roland Neveu and text by Ben Davis.
