OPENING OF RAMMY NARULA’S PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION ‘PLATFORM 10’

aw_logo-rammy_1

On Wednesday 14 December 2016 at 6:30pm , S Gallery at Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit welcomes art lovers to a new photography exhibition and a launch and signing of  a new photo book, ‘Platform 10’ by Rammy Narula.

Platform 10 exhibition

The solo photography exhibition is a showcase for the work of talented Thai–Indian artist, Rammy Narula. Rammy is a Bangkok-based photographer with a deep passion for travelling and exploring the streets. His work covers personal projects, portraits, and photography resulting from countless hours roaming the streets of the cities he visits. His most recent work, Platform 10, a project shot on a single platform at the Hua Lamphong Train Station in Bangkok, has been published as a photo book with Peanut Press, a publishing house in New York.

In 2013 he exhibited his first Hua Lamphong Train Station series, a black and white project of the same train station he worked on in 2015 for “Platform 10”. In 2014 he exhibited “Life is a Act”, a project consisting of candid street photographs taken on his travels.

Platform 10 is the culmination of Rammy’s work at Hua Lamphong, Bangkok Central Train Station. He went there the first time in 2012 and his early pictures of people at the station were made in black and white. That work became an exhibition in 2013. He switched to colour photography in 2014 and kept going back trying to take pictures of the station with a fresh idea.

After over a year without a real breakthrough it was very much by chance that on a random day in 2015 he found himself on a quiet platform at the far end of the station when a short train came in, made a 20-minute stop, and got going on its way. He discovered that the photographs he took that day had a very different feel to his previous work and it was the spark that he had been looking for. He kept going back every day for the next six months to photograph that window of time on the same platform.

“Life moves very quickly and a lot can happen when you’re not looking. Hua Lamphong train station, renowned for being very slow-paced, wakes into life each time a train makes a short stop. Passengers move,” says Rammy Narula. “Train officials ushering them on. Custodians begin their maintenance work. Supplies get loaded. All of it begins and ends almost just as soon as it starts. As an observer, the feeling it evokes when everything happens at the same time in that way feels oddly harmonious. Like watching an orchestra performing without a conductor, I set out to take pictures in this small window of time on a single platform. A platform blessed with atmospheric mood found when a short three cabin train makes its daily short 20-minute stop. I focused on the isolated moments. The little pauses while everything was in motion. The stillness of the different characters connected with me and they became my muse. What was everyone thinking, I often wondered. They say life’s a journey and through the people on Platform 10, I believe I made mine.”

At the opening night of the exhibition, the lobby will recreate the atmosphere of Hua Lampong station.

Guests will enjoy a welcome drink inspired by flavors of Thailand and light Thai street food canapés. Background music will complement the artistic ambience. Art lovers and VIPs will then be invited to a new photo book launching and signing of ‘Platfrom 10’ by Rammy Narula, followed by a viewing of his works in S Gallery.

The photo book will be available at THB 1,500 net and a special limited edition book numbered 001 – 100 will be avilable at THB 5,500 net including a print photograph of the signature image from the exhibition signed by the artist.

Mr. William Haandrikman, General Manager of Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit, said recently, “Rammy has a passion for street photography. He enjoys walking and making new discoveries everywhere he goes. People and their interactions with their environment interest him. He’s always looking for situations and scenes that he can respond to visually and emotionally and he takes candid photographs in the most harmonious way possible. It is a great pleasure to showcase Rammy’s orignal work and to welcome a receptive art loving audience to another unique exhibition at S Gallery.”

Rammy’s unique photography art exhibition will be on show at S Gallery until 14 February 2017.

Traditionally in the evening of Loy Kratong, thousands of people go down to the nearest river to float their kratong, a small raft made from a banana palm and decorated with flowers, a candle and incense.

This year it gives us great pleasure to invite you to our own magnifique Loy Kratong celebrations at our pool, on the 9th floor where a special ceremony will be held to release your own kratong for good fortune and to pay homage to the Goddess of Water!
