    Muse, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 04/03/2017

    » For Sam Bompas and Harry Parr, it all began with making jelly just for fun after school and on weekends. More than a decade later, it's still about that, except that the duo are now among the world's most prominent and innovative event organisers.

    The art of activism

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 20/02/2017

Confronting viewers right after entering is a collage of shots arranged together, kaleidoscope-like. Nearby, four images placed together capture the photographer's motion while walking. Further inside, the photographer's self-portrait is ghostly transparent as a result of an experiment with long exposure.

    Exposure is key to Chiang Mai photography exhibition

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 25/01/2017

    » The room is red and hot, but nothing feels erotic about it. Eight naked models are featured in Tada Hengsapkul's latest photography show "The Things That Take Us Apart", yet it resulted not in a height of sexual tension but just a seemingly normal and civilised social gathering.
