Life Explore Soul, by Thai street photographer Sakulchai Sikitikul, is the winning project of URBAN Book Award 2022, the section of URBAN Photo Awards dedicated to authorial projects destined to become photographic books.
Life Explore Soul, selected by American photographer Susan Meiselas from over 100 competing projects, contains a series of street photos mainly set in Songkhla, Thailand, the author’s hometown.
“A good book has surprises”, writes Susan Meiselas in the introduction of the volume, “with the framing of a photograph, the relationship between images and the sequences as pages turn. Life Explore Soul invites this level of engagement for a viewer, through its juxtapositions, directing our eyes with multiple focal points, perspective shifts, and mysterious elements. At times one is unsure if these are images captured in a camera or constructed through collage.”
The photographic volume Life Explore Soul, published by Exhibit Around APS, will premiere at Trieste Photo Days, Saturday 29 October 2022 in the Auditorium of the Revoltella Museum, in the presence of Susan Meiselas.
