Six Bangkok-based French ladies, all keen amateur photographers, are staging a photo exhibition titled “Du Sel et des Hommes” (Of Salt and Men) at the gallery of the Alliance Française this month. Anikó Palánky, Catherine White, Isabelle Touyarou, Marie-Christine Reitz, Stéphanie Breton and Stéphanie Noto have come together to document their experiences of living in Thailand and their photos can be found on a dedicated Facebook page, “Bangkok Snapshots”, and in the French TukTuk magazine.
In this latest series of images, the women pay tribute to the hard work of the salt workers who prepare the taken-for-granted condiment in salt pans along the main Bangkok to Hua Hin road. Their vivid photos are on the one hand beautiful and yet on the other descriptive of the harsh conditions in which the salt workers travail.
“Of Salt and Men” runs until November 22
