Behind Tin Walls

Photographs by Visarut 'Pop' Sankhum

Exhibition opening: Friday, March 3, 2017 at 7PM 
Entry cost: Free


"Behind Tin Walls" is a project documenting the lives of migrant workers living in three different camp sites of Bangkok. Mostly migrant workers from Cambodia, they occupy temporary tin-walled structures as they build Bangkok’s booming luxury condominium industry. Their own living conditions are of stark difference, raising health and safety concerns for the workers and their families. This emerging Thai photographer's work shows the parallel world in the shadows beneath the rising towers of Bangkok, the ‘City of Angels’.

Visarut ‘Pop’ Sankham is an independent photojournalist based in Bangkok, Thailand. Originally inspired to pick up a camera in the face of social injustices around him, he seeks the nuance behind struggle. “I believe the best place to see hope, is the place where it is almost gone”, says Pop. His work has been featured in Sarakadee Magazine, The Nation, The News Lens, and Trans Border News. See his work at www.sankhamphotography.com
