About Thanakorn Treratanaboot
He was born in Bangkok, 1992. Graduated from Mahidol Wittayanusorn Science High School in 2010 and started a course in Doctor of Medicine in 2011. Now he is a 5th year Medical student of Siriraj Hospital, Mahidol University, Thailand.
His life didn’t involve in photography since the beginning. The first 2 decades of his life focused mainly on Science and Logic, Mathematics and Physics. Needless to say, there is no such thing like art or photography in his head, the art galleries are the LAST place he will think of. There is no clue to him or anyone around him that he will or can be obsessed in the arts of photography this much.
It was June, 2013 when his parents bought him his first camera. Little did he know, his life was about to have a drastic change. He first tried with every genre, from portrait, cityscape, documentary, sport to street photography. Still, nothing has inspired him yet. Until December, 2014 when the Street Photo Thailand Collective announced their recruitment for a new membership – that’s when he started to took a serious look in Street Photography. Surely, as anyone could guess, his submission didn’t make it to the collective.
On the other hand, he has got many precious things back in return. After doing some research to prepare for the submission, his point of view has been changed – forever. He started to see the beauty in a daily life around him. He spends time staring at things longer and longer each day. He became an observer, not just a passerby. He became more meticulous.
His aim is to inspire more people into Street Photography and together, make it a better place for anyone with creative mind and endless imagination.
One of his works has been featuring with the EyeEm Street Photography Awards 2015’s exhibition in New York, London, and much to come – the exhibition will visit many interesting place around the world. Also, his work in the Observe Collective’s competition ‘Under construction’ has already been exhibited at Iserlohn, Germany in June 2015.
