Chez Pepin French restaurant presents "Cabaret", an exhibition of backstage photos from the Tiffany and Alcazar cabaret shows in Pattaya captured by Bangkok-based French photographer Simon Kolton.
The series was not premeditated. Luck took Kolton to the front door of the famous Alcazar, where he met the director who invited him in for backstage shots. The series was made within a few nights between the Tiffany and the Alcazar shows. This impressive series is being shown for the first time and will be Kolton's first solo show in Bangkok.
Kolton has always had a true passion for photography and has had a camera in his hands since his teenage years.
His favourite subject has always been the people around him.
In his work, close friends and strangers have the same status, making his photos very human and intimate. As he puts it, Thailand is a gigantic photo studio with a few million actors.
Cabaret by Simon Kolton will be on show at Chez Pepin restaurant from Friday to March 30. The opening cocktail reception is on Friday at 6.30pm.
The restaurant is located on Suan Phlu Soi 1 and opens Wednesday to Sunday from 7pm to 1am. Call 084-914-5499.
