The Royal Photographic Society of Thailand, in collaboration with the BACC and Sundaram Tagore Gallery, brings one of the world’s best attended photo shows to Thailand. The exhibition—on display at the BACC until March 8th—showcases more than 120 iconic black-and-white images, taken since 1986 up until the present time, by famed Brazilian photographer Sebastião Salgado. Having travelled to more than 100 countries throughout the past 30 years, even living with his subjects for weeks in order to break down barriers and immerse himself in their environment, he has been an inspiration to many in his profession. The images on show are selected from his most influential photo series, and each of his images is infused with empathy and respect for his subjects. In addition to the show, there will also be screenings of the Oscar-nominated documentary Salt of the Earth, about Salgado’s work.
On February 8th at 4pm, Salgado himself will give a talk and share his experiences, and there will be a book signing session on February 9th, from 3pm to 4pm. The exhibition is free, but tickets to attend Salgado’s talk are B500 for association’s member or students, and B1,000 for the general public. Tickets can be reserved only at The Royal Photographic Society of Thailand (2F, BACC), or by calling 091 115 7575.
