THE ONES TO WATCH
AM: Where were you born? - what is it like back there?
JG: I was born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Its a tropical island in the Caribbean. Its sunny, hot and beautiful. Its not a economically rich country, but it has the richest land and ecosystems I’ve been able to see. Its a unique feeling for me, because wether I feel good or bad, hot or cold (almost impossible to feel actual cold there), black and white or colourful or any other possible sensation, comes with the priceless feeling of being home, sweet home.
AM: What is the earliest memory you have from your childhood?
JG: It is from my 6th birthday. It was Spongebob themed! It may have been the biggest birthday celebration I’ve ever had. I remember both sides of grandparents, cousins, uncles and aunts. Even the school friends of my brothers and my parents work colleagues. It is a truly happy memory indeed, thanks for the reminder!
AM: Back t...
Italian born, photographer Gio Sbriz has always been inspired by the lives of the people around him. As a child he found he was curious about passerby’s conversations, personalities and most importantly if they were happy. Sbriz's inquisitiveness has created the perfect canvas to capture portraits of his close friends, acquaintances or brief and fleeting encounters. His collections are filled with real people, living their very real lives- from people enjoying their afternoon at the park to people sleeping on train cars. His work has no particular pattern, but is shot from emotional connection or circumstances that are effecting Sbriz's life in that moment....
A: What’s your name?
T: My name is Tonsai Amartayakul. In Thai, Tonsai means the start of line route, lake or river.
A: Where were you born? What is it like there?
T: I was born in 1996 in Bangkok. Many people who live in this city aren't actually from Bangkok, I was born and raised here. My first home was near the downtown of the city centre. Because I have lived here my whole life, I find this city a little boring at times. But it is my home, and I am happy to be here especially because my family is here.
A: Back then when you were a child, did you dream of travelling around the world one day like you do now?
T: When I was child I really wanted to explore to Europe. Especially the Netherlands and the UK. I still do! But before I decide to travel, I am planning to focus on my work in the fashion industry and my studies.
A: Is there something you really miss from your old place?
