“Contrast” Photograph

It is no surprise that contrasts like this well-off young woman and amputee beggar appear side by side in Bangkok. Major cities attract and create wealth which in turn attracts the most desperate and unfortunate in society. We all know the disparity exists but it can still be quite shocking when confronted by it on the street so blatantly. But perhaps in this case the contrast is not just about wealth versus poverty or opportunity versus none, it is also about attractive versus eyesore.
