Akkara Naktamna : Street Photography

I think that photograph is the reflection of photographer; so if I'm a quiet person, my photographs are more quiet. While other photographers approach a crowd to find a beautiful light and shadow, nice emotion of life, or scene of noisy town

I was born in Bangkok, Thailand in 1979 and started shooting in 2008 which was influenced by a photo book “Dog Dogs” by Elliott Erwitt, and a comedy movie named “Pecker”.

As I remember it, I bought a point and shoot camera after reading that book and went out to shoot everything I found; even though I didn’t know yet what is street photography. I think that photograph is the reflection of photographer; so if I’m a quiet person, my photographs are more quiet. While other photographers approach a crowd to find a beautiful light and shadow, nice emotion of life, or scene of noisy town, I seek the difference way and humour is a thing I found. Elliott Erwitt’s work always influences me about this; it likes a newspaper comic, quiet, clever, funny, and ironical. My work is changing a silent thing to be an unexpected story. You may laugh on it and doubt that are being ridiculed in the same time.

AImagine: the new Era of making Art ?

We are experiencing a turning point; indeed, I would say a revolution in the artistic disciplines, especially those relating to visual art; it is the beginning of a new Era in which the current paradigms will no longer be valid, in which reality will be questioned or modified through alternative realities.

Turin; You Do Not See by Riccardo Surace

Turin; You Do Not See by Riccardo Surace

The project titled What You Do Not See, Unordinary tells the story of the City of Turin, my city, seen through the eyes of passersby. All photographs have been captured with a long exposure technique; in other words, I mixed then history of the city with my own history, my life experience. In fact, after five years spent fighting a disease, my artistic purpose is primarily that of representing the all too familiar feeling when, as a young man wandering through the city, one feels invisible, and yet still he is thoroughly involved in its daily frenzy.
