WILL THIERBACH - Hong Kong- and Washington, D.C.-based photographer and aspiring yogi...
I still remember the excitement I felt when using my very first camera, a Polaroid instamatic. The click, buzz and whirrrrrr...then the awful anticipation waiting for that beautiful, shiny, square piece of plastic to produce some magic. I loved everything about capturing life on film and feel the same today.
I've lived all over the U.S., in Japan and now in Hong Kong for the past five years. My nearly 10 years in the U.S. Navy flying F-14 Tomcats took me around the world and helped develop my love of adventure and photography. More importantly, my travels taught me that people are the same the world over...I try to experience the world through their eyes and capture it all through my lens.
Asia brims with beautiful contrasts. The urban frenzy of Tokyo, Shanghai, Bangkok, Jakarta and Hong Kong -- the spriitual serenity of Cambodia, Thailand, Myanmar, Sri Lanka and India. Asia's chaotic harmony and its array of amazing sights, sounds, tastes and textures provide boundless photographic opportunities.
