我選達克帕西甘迺波《霓虹日記》系列作品作為 Jury award for Wonder Foto 2019，因為我認為這系列討論光的作品極具說服力。
"Tachpasit Kunaporn: I picked Tachpasit Kunaporn as my Jury award for Wonder Foto 2019 for his series ""Neon Diary"".
I found this series of works around the topic of light extremely convincing. The way Tachpasit deals with his thematic is original.
The photos are portraits or landscapes or interiors or city views. They are all connected in a way.
In his photo, the lightening does not help to see but on the contrary, light constantly disturbs the view and alters landscapes or faces. The light almost makes a subject disappear or it makes it daunting, strange or threatening. This is how Tachpasit convincingly relates light to death. Supposedly, when one dies, he sees a bright light, light being the last thing a dying person sees.
So the connection between the topic of light and disappearance is brilliant. It is not theoretical but sensual and physical.
Each of his photos are interesting, intriguing and sometimes almost abstract. Compositions are elaborated and aesthetic. But the photos, although thoroughly composed, are never cold nor distant."
