In the photographer's words: "Buddhism is the main religion throughout Thailand, and the city of Bangkok is home to some of the most extravagant and beautiful temples in the world. This row of Buddha statues has amazing detail and shows flawless craftsmanship. The contrasting gold and red as well as the repetitive forms created a scene that was serene yet powerful and moving."
