BangkokGlow: Xavier Portela’s Vibrant Series Of Night Photographs Of Bangkok

Xavier Portela is a Belgo-Portuguese photographer based in Brussels who started his career as a multimedia developer working mainly in agencies in Belgium. At the time photography was just a hobby. In 2012 he left his job to become full time freelance and since then he is working as a photographer/filmmaker.
Following the success of ‘glowxpo’, a series of night photographs of Tokyo and Hong-Kong, Xavier decided to add another city to the collection and traveled to bustling Bangkok to capture the urban landscape and street life.
Portela’s manipulation of tones and hues emphasizes glowing light features and pops of color, allowing fine details and textures to catch the viewer’s eye at a glance. Many of the images capture unique aspects of Bangkok life, food vendors, tuk tuk (auto rickshaws), and a variety of other crowded street activities.
