Faces of Siam is a set of photographs intended to capture faces of Thailand’s inhabitants that are rarely seen by foreigners and even Thai city-dwellers.
Including those of ethnic communities, rural villages, and minorities living in the edge of the country. The portraits are full of surprises including surreal settings which are real, not re-created.
The final product will be an exhibition and also likely to be published in art book format. This is a long-term project so we envisage it to be printed in 2014-2015. Stay-tuned!
