Miti Ruangkritya, 1981, Thailand, studied Photojournalism at the University of Westminster. His work is mainly documentary based yet he tries not to restrict himself in any way. He is currently working on an ongoing project that consists of a polaroid installation placed on the beach of Nongkhai in Thailand. A dining table displays the polaroids without placeholders, inviting the viewers to pick up the images and be involved. By adding mattresses and swimming rings he wants to create a relaxed atmosphere for the audience to enjoy the work outside of a typical gallery exhibition. In his series On the Edge he took a closer look at Siem Reap, a city he had visited in 1991 when there was only one hotel and one bar. Today the city has massively exploded in size consisting of 5 star hotels, restaurants and bars. Miti viewed the city from a distance “from the vantage point of someone approaching (or perhaps momentarily escaping) the city.” His work has been exhibited in London, Paris and Thailand and his portfolio will be featured in the May 2012 edition of the British Journal of Photography. The following images come from the series Imagining Flood, Northern Route and On the Edge.
We’ve been receiving a flurry of anxious, worried messages via email from people who are uploading their photographs and multimedia for the Lens Culture International Exposure Awards 2011. They are worried because the upload system is unusually slow. Seems like our online system is experiencing a bit of overload, and that is creating unnecessary stress for a lot of talented people. Absolutely, the upload system is slower than usual today — especially for you multimedia artists with large files.
Sorry. But please don’t worry. handyman matters .
