Leica Gallery Bangkok
The German camera brand beloved of hipsters opens a Bangkok gallery.
Gaysorn Village’s new Leica Gallery Bangkok is proving that it’s more than just a fancy name with its first exhibition: a retrospective on the work of legendary photojournalist Nick Ut (otherwise known as the “Napalm Girl” shooter).
But the gallery is no temporary pop-up. Its lai-Thai-kra-chang-patterned walls are here to stay, offering the promise of photography exhibitions from some of the world’s greatest names as well as a balcony cafe.
Ut’s exhibition runs through Apr 30 and features 25 original black-and-white photographs, including the haunting image of a naked Vietnamese girl scorched by napalm that changed U.S. public perception on the Vietnam War. See it or miss out.
If you feel inspired, it's also attached to a shop where you can buy Leica cameras. The starting price for a Leica M10: B270,000.
