“The newly opened KATHMANDU PHOTO GALLERY, in a wonderfully-restored old pre-war shophouse aptly located near the Indian (Sri Mariamma) Temple in Bangkok’s financial district, aims to do the same.”
Its owner, Thai photo-artist Manit Sriwanichpoom, 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.
Open daily from 11 AM to 7 PM, closed on Monday.
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 skytrain stations.
