On the streets of Bangkok, cars are identified as a symbol of death because they are not always driven by proper people.
The extremely high number of fatal accidents on the streets of the Thai capital becomes the common thread for a totally noir project that delicately combines diaristic style, collage, and the brutality of the subject matter.

In a book not for the faint of heart, Philip Blenkinsop brings together quotes, newspaper clippings and photographs, showing a culture on a collision course with disaster.

One of the first, brilliant, reportages conducted in Asia and translated into an artist’s book by the then young Anglo-Australian reporter, now a member of the Noor agency.
