Published by Rvb Books
In addition to his personal photographic practice, a French artist of Asian origin, Tiane Doan na Champassak carries out a reflection about anonymous photography, collected via various sources such as Internet, family albums, or magazines. His work often translates into bookmaking and publishing and he has already released over a dozen books. ‘Siam’s Guy’ is his first book blending together his own photography and his re-appropriation practice. The book borrows its title from one of his collected items, ‘Siam’s Guy’, a Thai erotic magazine from the 1960s and 1970s that remained available over the counter in spite of censorship.
