Sideways 2 is the group that was selected during the ‘Creative Space Workshop Project 2012’ by the Thailand Creative Design Center (TCDC). All the members of the group attended the photography course “BANGKOK STREET PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP with VINAI DITHAJOHN.”
Khun Vinai is a very well-known photographer from the Bangkok Post and the European Press photo Agency of Thailand who won Photo of the Year prize from FCCT- The Foreign Correspondents’ club of Thailand in 2007 and his works have been published in international media such as Time Magazine, The International Herald Tribune and South China Morning Post.
The workshop's objective was to train photographers under the concept of ‘Street Photography’, coached and run by Khun Vinai who as a professional photographer is both a photojournalist and a documentary photographer.
The course covered photography techniques and concepts for creating a masterpiece. The group learnt how he thinks and captures images that record history and preserve social life. The photograph can tell a story about a specific period of time, different meanings or hidden agendas as well as reflecting funny or sarcastic stories in daily life. In the end we are able to spot something accidentally that’s truly unbelievable yet all together real.
Initially, Sideway group showcased ‘Street Inboxes’ photography exhibition at The Box Prop & Studio that received great feedback from visitors. The Creative Space Workshop was held in 2013 and led to the up and coming photography exhibition Sideways 2 under the name of “Snatchers”:
The group includes the following 12 ‘snatchers’ who snatch different periods of time that resulted in the exhibition’s theme.
