This is the Bangkok launch of Zhuang Wubin’s “Photography in Southeast Asia: A Survey” (NUS Press, 2016). The book has taken over ten years to complete, and surveys the varying ways in which photography intersects the practices of art, journalism, politics, culture and religion across the region. The bulk of the book spans the post-WWII era to the contemporary, with individual chapters dedicated to the countries of Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand, The Philippinesand Vietnam. In this informal discussion, Zhuang will be joined by Miti Ruangkritya, who is featured in the Thailand chapter of the book. Both of them will take up some of the trajectories of Thai photography and consider them within the context of Southeast Asia. zhuang wubin / 庄吴斌  is the photographer, researcher and curator I had a chance to learn from, two years ago. Here are the pictures of the workshop !

‘A Boy Who Was Kidnapped by Time’     by Harit Srikhao 7 January – 25 February 2017 (Opening party on Sat 7 Jan at 6.30 – 9.00 pm) A certain eerily dilapidated short-time motel in Suthisarn is a favourite location for filmmakers and photojournalists. The stories they get from it might revolve around the seedy cess-pit of the melodramatic lives of cheap pimps and prostitutes. But for Haris Srikhao, a thoughtful and imaginative photo-artist, it’s a universe that has locked away within its dimensions a haunting childhood memory, of a friend from middle school who had died young—the boy kidnapped by time, who’ll never grow up or grow old. Harit Srikhao (born 1995 in Bangkok) is a 4th year photography student at King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang. This series was chosen for inclusion in the ‘reGeneration3’ group exhibition at the Musee de l’Elysee (Lausanne, Switzerland), the Format Festival QUAD Galleries (Derby, UK) and the Centro Nacional de las Artes a Mexico. In 2016, his work ‘Heaven Gate’ from the series ‘Whitewash’ was awarded the Barbara Tannenbaum Juror’s Prize at the Filter Photo Festival (Chicago, USA). In 2016 Harit won SCG Young Thai Artist Award in photography. More about this […]
