BANGKOK — Love may burn the heart in flames, but not in every relationship is serene romance found. A rising photographer reflects on unconventional aspects of love through photos at an exhibition launching Saturday.

As goes the heart, Ram Kanjanavanit’s photos bleed with colors to create mystery, horror – and yet love. He breaks romantic stereotypes to explore its authenticity and instincts, be they through screams, scars or sex.

With a background in commercial event photography and music videos, the 28-year-old photographer will launch his first solo exhibition since graduating from the International Center of Photography in New York.

“Burning Love” will kick off Project New Visions, a series curated by prestigious photographer Manit Sriwanichpoom in search of exciting new photography in Thailand.



The opening reception starts at 6:30 pm on Saturday and runs through Dec. 28 at Kathmandu Photo Gallery located on Pan Road across from the Hindu temple on lower Silom Road. It’s reachable from BTS Surasak, BTS Sala Daeng or MRT Silom.
