The Bangkok International Film Festival is going well – I’m twelve or thirteen films into it and have several more to go. There’s still plenty going on in town besides movies. One of those things of note is a photo exhibition by a friend:
Justin Brooks, British expat, English teacher and talented photographer, will have his works displayed at Gallery F-Stop (located at Tamarind Cafe, the tasty vegetarian east-west fusion restaurant on Sukhumvit Soi 20) beginning this Friday, 27 July. In fact, there is an open invitation to the opening night party, starting at 6:00 pm.
Justin does a lot of work in black and white, creating beautiful textures and using a strong hand in controlling light exposure to create luminous photos. These are two of his photos as a sample and hope those of you in Khrungthep will take the opportunity to see them all at Tamarind Cafe.
Here is two interesting photos I took, one on the way to class on Monday of a monk riding on the back of a motorbike, the other of a celebrity ping pong tournement between two sets of radio station DJs at Central World Plaza mall on Tuesday evening.
