Vanishing Bangkok: The Changing Face of the City

Mar 19, 2020

River City Bangkok is pleased to present Vanishing Bangkok: The Changing Face of the City. This photo exhibition gathers the photographs shot over the past five years on a large format Linholf film camera which captures the city’s fragile beauty, its rich heritage and faded charm that may be about to disappear forever beneath a tidal wave of urban development. Visitors can peer into exquisite images of the Old Customs House on the banks of the Chao Phraya River to the teeming alleyways of Chinatown, sleepy canals and dilapidated buildings shrouded in antiquity, they evoke the extraordinary history and diversity of this great city.

Bangkok’s rapidly changing landscape is the subject of a stunning black and white photographic book and exhibition by veteran British photographer and writer Ben Davies called ‘Vanishing Bangkok: The Changing Face of the City.’

 

Vanishing Bangkok: The Changing Face of the City
RCB Photographers’ Gallery (2nd floor), River City Bangkok.
 until 30 April.
