Rediscovering Forgotten Thai Masters ช่างภาพไทยที่โลกลืม by Manit Sriwanichpoom
Rediscovering Forgotten Thai Masters of Photography gathers images taken in Thailand during the 1950s to 1970s by seven photographers: Buddhadasa Bhiku, Liang Ewe, S.H. Lim, Saengjun Limlohakul, Pornsak Sakdaenprai, 'Rong Wong-Savun, and M.L. Toy Xoomsai. It is the fruit of many years of Manit’s labour of love, to seek out and gather the work of seven Thai masters of photography, whose work vary greatly in style and substance. Some of this work has never been shown to the public before. One of them, Buddhadasa, is a revered sage and monk who used photography as a medium for the Buddha’s teachings. Two are better known as celebrated writers, Rong Wong-savun and M.L. Toy Xoomsai (who had taught Rong photography). One of them, Pornsak Sakdaenprai, still had to rely on sunlight for printing and enlarging when he opened his photo studio because, in 1959, his remote hometown in Northeast Thailand had not yet entered the age of electricity.
