PhotoBangkok
PhotoBook as Object / Photobook Who Cares Exhibition

July 2018

The Japan Foundation, Bangkok, co-organizes with PhotoBangkok 2018 an exhibition “Photobook as object / Photobook who cares” by Reminders Photography Stronghold at the Open House, Central Embassy. Reminders Photography Stronghold will participate in the form of an exhibition to introduce photographers involved in book making at RPS and their appeal including the process of making their works. 

Photographers now can easily edit on their computer screens. However the RPS book making process is heavily focused on the output of a physical dummy book. Touching, reading and thinking through a tangible photo book often provides photographers with new perspectives, simply because they are more conscious and aware of what they are creating. Photographers can further unfold meaningful details through choices of papers, ways of printing, size, weight, sense of touch, the structure of a book and so on.
