Marc Schultz @ Face
We are proud to announce the opening of a photography exhibition at Face Bangkok Restaurant. The exhibition will be featuring a series of photos entitled Urban Lines, a project shot exclusively by Bangkok-based photographer, Marc Schultz.
The Urban Lines project is a collection of unique photographs captured in Bangkok which exhibit elements of a developing Asian city in transition. This series of retrospective pictures portrays details of a growing urban landscape in which industrializing interests struggle to modernize, resulting in a sacrifice of some of the city's intrinsic beauty from its past. In the face of this evolution, these images portray vignettes of life from within the few original enclaves of the city that still remain and provide a glimpse into the historical character of this evolving mecca. In capturing these images, every shot was taken hand-held using a fish-eye lens and in only available light. The distorted angles created by the optics produce a unique perspective for the viewer, designed to add to the visual appeal of the imagery.
More info about Urban Lines can be seen on www.urbanlines.asia
The exhibition opening party will be held at Face Bangkok Restaurant in the bar area from 6PM until 10PM on January 19th, 2010. The exhibition opening party is open to the public and food and drinks will be served. The photo exhibition will remain on display at Face Bangkok until March 10, 2010. Face Bangkok is located on Sukhumvit Soi 38 and can be reached by taking the BTS Skytrain to Thonglor station. Face Bangkok is 100 meters into Soi 38 on your left.

Face Bangkok has established itself as one of Bangkok's leading dinning venues, where you can enjoy three of Asia’s most popular cuisines, Thai, Japanese and North Indian cuisine, or just relax in it’s stunning bar surround by an exotic and chic environment, accented with South East Asian antiques and artifacts.
Structurally we referred to the classical Thai extended family house, and the importance of the "klong" which by tradition was the "road" access to the Thai house. There was also an emphasis on the South Asian use of many changes of floor levels. www.facebars.com
