AM Projects


Never-ending bridges where concrete is always within touch, the noise symphonic in cacophony, the spectrum between male and female which blurs distinctions and renders them irrelevant, the transition between life and death, the search of intimacy in a place where everything can be found for sale, from humans to a cheap luxury which envelops the ones, searching for a moment of power or oblivion to forget their loneliness, their search for the very fabric of reality.

Bangkok 2016.
Following a simple yet ambitious idea, AM Projects sailed for a collective shooting of one month in the same city, with AKINA publisher Alex Bocchetto tagging along with them.
HQ was set up in the crowded and infernal chaos of Chinatown, downtown Bangkok, but soon the collective dispersed through Siam square, Silom, Sukhumvit, the Riverside, each photographer setting their own personal quest and following their own individual visions.

Ice factories, concrete bridges, the city’s outskirts, go-go bars, the underground, the over-belly, expat hang-outs, abandoned luxury complexes, hotel rooms, lobbies and halls, crowded night markets, run-down brothels, the sweat, always the sweat, and the empty back-streets at dawn.
