Until December 25
This solo exhibition by emerging photographer Virunan Chiddaycha is a tribute to both the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej as well as a showcase for the art of landscape photography. The landscapes that the artist presents highlight many of the places in Thailand that His Majesty paid a visit to and later developed during his reign (as a part of his Royal Projects initiative). There are nine landscape photographs in total, portraying the beauty of the regions and capturing the “last light” before sunset at the places where Thailand’s beloved King helped the local people develop into more prosperous and self-sufficient communities. It both underscores his accomplishments and his great contribution to the nation. Moreover, the exhibition will also have a sideline project of a series of portrait photographs showing the happiness and gratitude of the King’s people the areas surrounding these landscapes—illustrating the late monarch’s remarkable virtue. As the artist himself declares: “The sun will be gone by sunset, but the goodness, the beauty, and legacies will last forever”.
