March 3-April 29
Didier Mayhew, a 49 year-old French-English photographer who resides in Nepal, is making his Bangkok debut. The photographer’s bond with the children in the photos is real and based on trust, built over three years of following around the nomadic families that hail from the Terai, the infamous ‘malarial lowlands’ between the Indian border and the Nepali Himalayan foothills. Unlike the much-photographed colourful Kathmandu Valley people and the iconic Sherpa, these are people who truly have nothing. Transcendent and profound, these apparently familiar images of poverty have been transformed through being seen by the “eyes of love”.
