Snapshots of the Thai Past

The Pink Man Series‘ artist and photographer Manit Sriwanichpoom shows in his Bangkok-based gallery, Kathmandu Photo Gallery, an exhibition of vintage and never exhibited photos, taken between 1965 and 1967, by the owner of a photography studio from a northern-eastern province of Thailand, Pornsak Sakdaenprai, now 74.
The prints “reflect the influence and inspiration of the Golden Age of Thai country music, as one of Thailand’s oldest communities began to open up to modernisation and civilisation by thronging his studio for new images of itself”.
