The photography book is about Bangkok‘s everyday and urban life.
The images play on the contrasting lines of chaos and calmness, that documents bustle and serenity, that tells a story of tradition and modernity.
Nitsch juxtaposed different cameras and formats to showcase the diversity of Bangkok, without trying to shoot strikingly exotic postcard pictures in his work. He opens up visual angles and perspectives, captures brief, unique moments and displays wonderful scenes, which are perhaps not recognisable as such at first glance.
He doesn’t try to aestheticise, … but he also doesn’t focus on the strikingly inadequate. Neither does he try to create any kind of phony effects, as it were. And that’s what makes his work so unique.ROMAN RAHMACHER, GEO Epoche
