Kathmandu Photo Gallery is a wonderfully-restored old pre-war shophouse located near the Indian (Sri Mariamma) Temple in Bangkok’s financial district.
Thai photo-artist Manit Sriwanichpoom, the gallery owner, has modeled it along the lines of photographers’ shops of old, where one could walk in and sift through folders of signed prints for sale.
Downstairs the antique green walls are literally covered with framed black and white photographs of varied subjects from Manit’s travels, making it seem like a treasure chest, while the airy upstairs gallery plays host to the current temporary exhibition. A book corner offers a few art, photography and spiritually adventurous titles, such as books by Carlos Castaneda.
Its second floor art space holds temporary exhibitions of the work of outstanding photographers. Photographers are selected for their
ability to awaken and inspire new feelings and new way of seeing.
