What happens when street photography, conceptual art, and documentation are combined? The result is a unique, multifaceted panorama of images, whose versatility allows it to capture the sometimes abysmal, sometimes dazzling multiple facets of Bangkok. The photographer Peter Nitsch has captured the streets, people, and life in the capital of Thailand with his sensitive feel for the right moment and the special detail. This illustrated book turns readers into companions on his visual tour of discovery. Nitsch’s camera makes us see the city’s rhythm as a tango, which owes its idiosyncratic movement to the interaction of different cultures. A comparison that not only rhymes with “mango” (Bangkok’s nickname) but also translates the sweet and sour taste of the fruit into visual intoxication.

PETER NITSCH (*1973) studied communications design in Munich and co-founded the first crossover skate and snowboard magazine, Playboard, as well as the design studio Rupa. His photographic works have been awarded numerous prizes and in 2020 he was appointed a member of the Royal Photographic Society of Thailand. Nitsch lives and works in Munich and Bangkok.
