“iN-PUBLiC: An Exhibition of Street Photography”
|When||06 February - 24 March 2013 | 10:30-21:00|
See the unusual in the everyday through the eyes of acclaimed street photographers from around the world with this exhibition from the UK, in Thailand for the first time.
“iN-PUBLiC” is a group of photographers working in streets and public places. Nick Turpin founded the group in 2000 because he wanted to gather together other like-minded street photographers. The initial impetus came from photographers in London, followed by New York and Australia – and there are now 21 members worldwide.
iN-PUBLiC came about with the rise of the Internet and has become hugely influential in the international community of street photography and has contributed immeasurably to the resurgence of this very distinctive genre of photography.
This group exhibition shows the divergent styles from its members yet the common theme – as the name suggests – is that all the photographs are taken in public spaces. The unifying spirit of street photography is that it is real, it is not set up and it shows ordinary people going about their everyday lives. The images suggest a surreal world – from London to India to Portland, Oregon – but there are always touches of elegance and warmth.
The exhibition is jointly presented by TCDC and British Council, along with the accompanying “Bangkok: Street Photography Workshop”. For more information and how to apply, please click here.
