Please join us for the opening reception on Tuesday 14th December 2010 at 6:30 pm.

This end of year exhibition will show a fascinating combination of contemporary photography and antique photos from the early 1900s from Christophe Loviny's book; The Apsaras of Angkor.

“ Apsaras are mythical celestial nymphs who are messengers of joy and beauty between Cambodian kings and their gods. The sacred Apsara dance transforms ordinary girls into magical creatures which is captured through Loviny's lenses. Witnessing their metamorphisis, this exhibition shines a light on this World Heritage oral tradition.

We will also be exhibiting a must-see water colour sketches printed on silk by the famous Auguste Rodin of Cambodia's royal court dancers who accompanied King Sisowath to France for the 1906 Colonial Exposition in Marseille."

This is truly a historical moment in Thailand presented as fine arts photography. Only at The Pikture Gallery
