    A photographer princess

    Life, Pichaya Svasti, Published on 16/04/2019

    » Armed with her Leica camera and fixed lens, HRH Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana, the youngest daughter of His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun, woke up before sunrise -- at 5am -- and rode a jeep and hot-air balloon in search of the Big Five game animals of Kenya that are hardest to shoot on foot. In tough weather conditions, dusty and humid, she captured moments in the savannahs through still and motion pictures while illustrating her quest in her personal sketchbook. She worked until twilight shed the best lighting. At night, she rested in a tent with no phone signal. This happened every day throughout her five-day journey in Kenya in May 2018.

From classics, the likes of Doraemon and Atom Boy, to more contemporary works like Detective Conan and Fullmetal Alchemist, Japanese pop culture has permeated into the collective psyche of Thai people for as long as most of us can remember, and has had a major role in the formation of Thai pop culture as we know it today.

    Creative dialogue

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 16/07/2014

    » It’s either very enticing or discouraging to viewers when curator Andrew Stahl says that his new exhibition “illustrates nothing” and that “we expect an electric conversation with excitement and perhaps even failure”. The show is called “Monologue Dialogue 3: Fragility And Monumentality”, currently on display on the ninth floor of Bangkok Art and Culture Centre, and the works from various artists shown together are just as overwhelming as the exhibition’s title itself.
