Visual Diary18.06.19 - 22.07.19
Poj Kanjanahattakij was born in Thailand and bred in the United Kingdom, where he pursued his studies in Product Design and Visual Communication. While in his Creative Director days, this self-taught photographer developed a deep-seated adoration for capturing moments. Now well recognised across the industry as “Poj of Sixtysix Visual”, the portrait, wedding, travel and lifestyle photographer has established a distinct style — a style wherein surges of emotions are vividly expressed through natural lights and shadows.

Metropolis09.11.18 - 10.12.18
“While exploring places, I’m building another dimension, a personal imagery….”
Born in 1983, Renato D’Agostin is no mere street photographer or humble documenter of cities. Whether he’s exploring Venice, Paris, Los Angeles or Istanbul, capturing the elemental power of Niagara Falls or an acrobatic airshow in rural Italy, his work is all about forging a unique connection with his subject.
Tul Hirunyalawan – Reminiscence24.09.18 - 07.11.18
“The magic of freezing a fleeting moment. To be able to capture what’s meant to disappear in split second, and to be taken back in time to relive all those passing moments — long-forgotten emotions and disappearing feelings all over again.”
Still Unposed08.08.18 - 22.09.18
Featuring images from UNPOSED, the follow-up INDIAN UNPOSED, and his ongoing state-of-the-nation documentation of his homeland, this exhibition offers a brief yet true glimpse of Semetko’s technical brilliance and humanist vision. His gift for framing, for timing and for using relations between subjects to create impact or hint at a story is writ large. But in these spur-of-the-moment images we also find something deeper – a levity and even, at times, a commentary on the human condition. Whether he’s revealing humour or hidden beauty, illuminating the foibles of man or our need for intimacy, Semetko is that rare thing: a photographer who helps us see the everyday differently.
OURSELVES SOLITUDE27.06.18 - 06.08.18
Leica Camera would like to introduce the first Thai photographer to grace the Leica Gallery Bangkok. Ourselves Solitude is a solo exhibition by Virunan Chiddaycha, Leica Thailand Ambassador.
Ralph Gibson08.05.18 - 26.06.18
When the American art photographer Ralph Gibson began taking nudes in the early 1960s, they were windows into shared, private moments. “I would photograph girlfriends in domestic situations and say ‘hold it’ and would grab them walking across the room, getting a glass of water or something,” he told Eric Fischl in an interview for his 2009 book Nude. If the resulting image had a cinematic power or gestural implication it often had more to do with luck than intention. But that changed in the 1980s, when he began approaching the nude “as a total body of work” and tirelessly refining his attitude towards it. Captured moments became considered, pre-determined poses.
