Sobol has used his distinctly expressive, grainy aesthetic to capture images from Guatemala to Tokyo. In 2008 he released his first photographs of Thailand, a series that captures the grit and romanticism of Bangkok.

About Jacob Aue Sobol
Danish photographer Jacob Aue Sobol is known for his expressive style of black-and-white photography. “When I photograph, I try to use my instincts as much as possible,” he says. “It is when pictures are unconsidered and irrational that they come to life; that they evolve from showing to being.” Sobol’s photographs of Greenland, Guatemala, and Tokyo have won him numerous awards—from World Press Photo, Leica European Publishers Award 2008, and others. In 2008, he started working in Bangkok and Copenhagen.
Danish, b. 1976
