Thaipusam

I have a short article and a few images published in the current edition of South East Asia Backpacker magazine. The article is on the Thaipusam Festival in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. You can read the current issue online here: http://issuu.com/southeastasiabackpacker/docs/magazine_issue22

(Hint: I start on page 14.)

It’s interesting how this magazine stuff works. I intended it to be more of a photo essay with just a short story to provide some background information. I submitted 18 images to go with the story. They ended up using only a couple of them, and not necessarily the ones I feel are the strongest images. I guess it comes down to the space available and how the magazine is laid out. I haven’t read the article in the magazine yet, either. I’ve been afraid to see how much they may have edited it, or even worse, maybe not edited it at all.

I posted a teaser image a few months back, but I’m posting the rest of the images now that didn’t get published. You’ll have to go to the magazine link above to see the published ones and read the article.
