Peter Nitsch NFTs
A distinctive and raw portrait of contemporary Bangkok and its inhabitants that remains as complicated as inscrutable. Like Tango, Bangkok has influences from many countries. This photographic documentary concept explores the question of identity, and the boundaries between growth and angst – a finite attempt at conceiving of the inconceivability, that is life.

Developer Tray is composed of a series of portrait photographs of Marlene, a young teenager I met occasionally to capture some photographs the way she wanted to see herself. These video portraits, swaying gently through water, look almost as though they are dancing and emerging from the darkness. The shifting forms of the faces interrupt the black backdrop, and become the focal point of this video painted developer trays.
The series encourages the viewer to slow down and cultivate a meditative practice of close looking to the passing of time, to the subtle energy that flows all around the developer tray – remembering the simplicity of form and motion.

“Many of the characters portrayed by Nitsch were interrupted in their daily chores and they seem to be looking at themselves in a mirror. And mankind needs a mirror! The mirror, as a symbol, is a proverbial representation of consciousness, imagination and thought, whose character has temporal and existential variability…In Tango in the Big Mango the portraits are an important part of the scaffold constructed for this photo book. The approach given by Nitsch, through the interconnections established with his senses, means that we are actually our mirror, which represents us in our condition of continous expectancy, thus remaining bound to crude materiality.” – JM Ramirez-Suassi

Politics, religion, cultural heritage, hyper-consumerism . . . all now collide powerfully in the contemporary psyche. The tree thematic series ‘Greed. Growth. Angst’—each both singly and collectively pointing to troubling undercurrents.
The 9 conceptual plates are part of the ‘Tango in the Big Mango’ collection of 160 photographs (published by Hatje Cantz, ISBN 978-3-7757-4824-7) – a Baudelaire-like photo imagination about Bangkok, working at a ground zero of now-ness.

A behind-the-scenes look into ‘Chinese Opera in Thailand.’ A faint buzzing sound can be heard in the air. It smells like burnt tires, cooked bananas, and grilled squid – a porridge of diverse sounds and smells swirls around the body in the humid tropical air as entering Soi Charoen Krung 72/2 at 5 p.m.
A tiny concrete path penetrates deep into the backyards’ roofed labyrinth. A stage rises up into the gently lowering twilight sky at the end of the rabbit’s den. The performance starts at 8:00 p.m., but the story of the people behind the characters was told before the actual performance.
