Now that the Civil partnership bill has undergone with the Thai Government, the time is right for Thai people to openly discuss marriage equality. River City Bangkok, a space for contemporary art in Bangkok’s vibrant Creative District, is pleased to collaborate with the curator James Tong and to be a part of this constructive and positive mission by presenting the photography exhibition, BEYOND SKIN BY NORM YIP.
“For the first time, my photography of Asian men will reach a wider international audience” said photographer, Norm Yip “The images tell of my search for acceptance, identity and beauty. It reveals my desires and longings as a man finding one’s self in the other.” The exhibition at RCB Photographers’ Gallery features 25 photographs taken over a 20 year period beginning in 1999 to the present.
This internationally acclaimed photographer has long been an avid pioneer in the development of fine art Asian male photography. He established ‘The Asian Male Project’ which, through his lens, presents artistic images and thought provoking messages. Light and shadow, combine with his love for the classical form, culminating in a superb collection of artistically photographic masterpieces. Yip’s fresh outlook has captivated both Asians and Westerners alike.
Ten percent of the purchase price from each photograph sold during the exhibition will be donated to APCOM Foundation, Thailand. Discover and express your support for LGBT community from April 10 until May 31 at RCB Photographer’s Gallery on the 2nd floor. Free entry.
