Kathmandu Photo Gallery
The magic-drenched name of ‘Kathmandu’, invokes the idea of adventure, above all; physical, spiritual and psychedelic adventures that serve to open one’s third eye and one’s life.
Since September 2006, Kathmandu Photo Gallery has endeavoured to inspire such eye-opening and mind-blowing.
Aptly located in the heart of Pan Road’s ‘mini-India’ around the Sri Mariamma Temple in Silom, Bangkok’s financial and gem district, in a lovingly-restored pre-war shophouse, Kathmandu Photo Gallery was modeled on photographers’ shops of old, where one could walk in and sift through folders of signed prints for sale.
This is no idle pose, since its owner, Manit Sriwanichpoom, is Thailand’s best known photo-artist in the international art world. Downstairs, the antique green walls display framed prints of Manit’s own work, while the airy upstairs gallery plays host to the current exhibition by established and emerging photo-artists, as well as our ongoing ‘Seeking Forgotten Masters of Photography’ project. A book corner offers art and photography books and spiritually adventurous titles on Hinduism and Buddhism, Tantra, Shamanism and mountain literature.
Kathmandu Photo Gallery is at 87 Pan road (near Indian Temple), off Silom road,
Bangrak, Bangkok 10500 THAILAND.
Five minutes walk from either Surasak or Chong Nonsi BTS skytrain stations.
