กะเทย Ladyboys Photography Exhibition

March 9 @ 10:30 am - 5:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)
10:30 AM - 5:30 PM Tuesday - Friday Saturdays 10:30 AM - 4:00 PM Sunday & Monday by appointment

In 2017 and 2018 documentary artist Douglas Vuncannon photographed over one hundred transwomen in Bangkok, Thailand. (In Thailand, transwomen are known as “ladyboys” in English conversation.) Twenty-six 24″ x 24″ prints from this project will be shown.

This exhibit is a fascinating journey into communities that are poorly understood by many Western visitors to Thailand. In addition to sex workers and cabaret performers, Vuncannon also interviewed and photographed Thai transwomen in less visible positions. All are presented as rarely seen in the media.

Some viewers may find the images and themes provocative.
