Jerome Ming's Bangkok Random.
Anatomy of a changing city
Photographer and artist Jerome Ming captures a city in flux with a bizzard of images of complex, populous spaces in "Bangkok Random" at the Kathmandu Photo Gallery from August 11 to September 28.
Part documentary, part journal, the exhibition spans the four years of the Franco-Briton's stay in Thailand. It extends his experimentation with colour and form from 2004's "Babylon Luxuri", a series on Beijing. Ming now lives in Hanoi.
The gallery, at 87 Pan Road near the Indian temple off Silom Road, is open daily except Monday from 11am to 7pm.
Call (02) 234 6700 or visit Kathmandu-bkk.com.
Time among the Burmese
Politics and tourism usually overshadow all consideration of the average Burmese and his daily life. It is these ordinary lives that photographer Htien Win has made his subject for the past 12 years, and his show "The Lives of Ordinary People" is at the Foreign Correspondents' Club of Thailand until July 31.
The club is atop the Maneeya Centre on Bangkok's Ploenchit Road, and is open Monday to Friday from 10am to 11pm.
