In a sentence: Posts introduce an Asian photographer with a small well-selected group of images, a link to their page, and a paragraph or two of commentary on the work.

Asian Photography Blog features photographers from Greater Asia. Photographers are presented through a grouping of three of their images from a single series, followed by a short text that includes a link to the page of the photographer as well as a few thoughts on the images. The comments section provides a space for a relatively active conversation. The photographers are sharply curated, the comments informal and light.

A sidebar provides a blogroll with several other Asia-based sites as well as archives.

Asian Photography Blog can be found on Twitter.
