a Contemporary Photography Exhibition

"Lonely Land"

by Cattleya Jaruthavee

Opening reception: Thursday 19th May 2011 at 6:30 pm.
This summer exhibition will show a series of photography by up-and-coming female photographer Cattleya Jaruthavee.

This is her first solo exhibition, only at The Pikture Gallery.







“ Cattleya Jaruthavee portrays the effects of rural - urban migration in Thailand by examining the Northeastern region of Esarn. Emptiness has evolved from young adults leaving the area for larger cities, in search of work opportunities. What's left amidst the lonely landscapes are two extremes – the very young and old. Esarn is also where Thailand's bulk of rice is grown; a job left for the aged... full of uncertainty due to the area's vulnerability to droughts. Esarn's poverty is often looked down upon by larger cities, forgetting their rich culture and rice fields which turn the country's economy. Through photographic documentation, Lonely Land depicts aspects of Northeastern Thailand often forgotten. ”



The exhibition will be on display until Thursday 16th of June 2011
