While the wonders of travel are revealed in the destination, the journey is where the real magic happens. From the strangers you pass briefly to the fleeting sights of ever-changing landscapes, you experience a limbo in time, a sense of transience, that is an adventure on its own.

The bustling Hua Lamphong station in Bangkok is the epitome of transience, a gantry to hordes of travelers from the world over. Just stepping through its doors transports you to a different time – one dominated by rail travel.

Enter Justin Mott, armed with nothing more than a change of clothes, his EOS 1D-X Mark II and several lenses, on a Chiang Mai-bound train. On a journey that takes nearly 14 hours, he wields his camera as he hurtles into the countryside, capturing sights that might just make you rethink the way you travel.

Follow him as he explores the carriages of the #14 train and captures the faces of travelers both weary and excited; the rolling countryside that whizz by illuminated only by the sun and moon. Follow him from the moment his feet step off the platform in Hua Lamphong and onto Chiang Mai soil. Follow him as he seeks out adventure, and as he creates new memories immortalized on film for all eternity.
