Madeline Tolle grew up in the suburbs of Chicago before attending university at the University of Illinois. Following graduation, she moved to Philadelphia where she worked in corporate fashion as a buyer. It was in Philadelphia that she started to take photography more seriously and began to document both travels and daily life. Following a move to Los Angeles in the fall of 2018. She now works full time as a freelance editorial and commercial photographer. Her personal work focuses primarily on the under appreciated small moments of beauty in daily life.
Krung Thep is a “portrait of place” series I photographed in Bangkok. The idea behind the series is to look at travel photography from a perspective that’s more similar to portraiture, allowing me to focus on capturing the way a certain place “feels,” rather than simply documenting the place on a surface level. By focusing on the feel and mood, the photos operate individually, but also together as a series. The result is a perspective that captures both the small moments and the hustling chaos of daily life in Bangkok.
