Photo Exhibition : Tourists




Exhibition : Tourists
by Dow Wasiksiri
on December 11, 2010 - January 30, 2011
at Kathmandu Photo Gallery, Bangkok













In ‘Tourists’, famous Thai photographer Dow Wasiksiri trains his sensitive, observant eye on a new tribe of humans. Ignoring landscapes and historic monuments, Dow turned his camera instead on the strange customs and dress of his fellow tourists, local and foreign. These colourful, cartoonish candid shots reveal, beyond the need for amusement, their subjects’ yearning to see themselves as the discoverer of new worlds, before heading back to the humdrum struggle of their daily lives.
