Violence Erupts in Thailand

Agnes Dherbeys took great risk to photograph violent anti-government riots in Thailand. Her images are close-up, powerful and direct. She worked day and night, photographing clashes that saw anti-government protesters both attacking soldiers as well as being attacked. Her images were an emotional rendering of the chaotic and dangerous scenes around her.
