OnAsia Photographers Selected for Nine Days in The Kingdom Book Project - PPA Today

OnAsia Photographers Selected for Nine Days in The Kingdom Book Project

|

Six OnAsia contributing photographers were selected to participate in a prestigious book project which brought together 55 of the world’s top photographers to create a comprehensive photographic portrait of the Kingdom of Thailand in just nine days.

“We were thrilled to have so many of our member photographers working on this project,” said Peter Charlesworth Managing Director and Co-Founder of OnAsia. “The photographers selected for this book represented a roll call of the world’s leading talents. The selection of so many OnAsia members for this project underlines the importance we attach to working with this region’s top photographers.”

Entitled ‘Thailand: Nine Days in the Kingdom’, the book is being produced by Singapore publishing house Editions Didier Millet (visit the project’s website at: www.9days-inthekingdom.com). The project will be a contemporary update of a similar book called ‘Seven Days in the Kingdom’ that was produced by Editions Didier Millet in 1997.

The book is expected to be released in December 2007 to mark the birthday of Thailand’s revered monarch King Bhumipol Adulydej. The choice of nine days reflects the importance of the number nine in Thai numerology and echoes the fact that King Bhumipol, also known as Rama IX, is the ninth king in the current dynasty.

“A project like this is a rare opportunity for a photographer to enjoy creative freedom while participating in a collaborative project and showcasing his or her work alongside a world class line up of talent,” added Peter Charlesworth.
