You are cordially invited to the exclusive opening event of the exhibition “Spark of Hope”, photographs by German photographer Jonas Werner-Hohensee, on Tuesday, October 9th 2018 at 19:00 (7pm). Take a look and personally learn from the photographer himself about the story and the technique that is hidden behind each photo.
The opening evening holds another unique specialty prepared: The amazing Jazz artist Athalie de Koning, together with her outstanding jazz ensemble JAZZIAM, will narrate the story of some highlighted exhibition pieces along with specially curated songs. Even a creative and versatile Bangkok doesn’t get such a wonderful opportunity every day.
Jonas Werner-Hohensee and his wife Anita (graphic designer) first visited Northern Thailand about 10 years ago. After they got in touch with the German help association “Spark of Hope” in Germany, they quickly decided to set off for Phrao in order to get real impressions on site. Out of this friendship, they developed a deep love for Thailand and its people. During their trips to the North, they took fascinating portraits and lively shots that not only narrated the work and commitment of Spark of Hope and everyday life in the children’s home, but also documented life in the region.
Jonas Werner-Hohensee is a German photographer with a photo studio in Mainz near Frankfurt. Apart from classical photo shooting for advertisement purpose, he and his wife also support social projects. This is how the portrait series of the same title „Spark of Hope“ came into being. Taken with a large-format camera and on analog films, Jonas presents strong and sensitive portraits and lively shots of people and adolescents the organization “Spark of Hope” supports. His photographs show more than just faces, which in many ways, are filled with stories.
The exhibition is open to the public in Bangkok from October 9th until November 30th 2018 and can be visited during the usual opening hours of the Goethe-Institut Thailand.
