Documentary Arts Asia

Photo by Ryan Libre

My good friend and colleague Ryan Libre has founded an organization called Documentary Arts Asia, a growing community of photographers, writers and artists working to share the important untold stories of Asia through new media, art and photojournalism.

Check out 2 of DAA's first feature presentations:

China Mobile - a photo essay about China on the move:

The Asoke
- a photo essay about a particularly enlightened sect of radical Buddhism in Thailand.

(If you have a slow connection, please wait a moment for the photo essays to load.)

DAA is based in Chiang Mai, Thailand, not far from the Pun Pun Farm.
