In Thailand today, there are different cultures, religions, and social standards cohabitating together. The project “LadyB” came from collaborating with the Thai model and performer Phanuwat Srirachat. The inspirational idea was to showcase different points of view on the hopes and efforts of a young group of Thai transgenders that are living in Bangkok. Putting together Mattia’s realistic photography and the model’s selfies and Instagram images of themselves, the project aims to show without judgment how the different perspectives may help to build a better understanding of the whole.
This project aspires to help the Thai LGBT community share this part of Thai sexual culture with the world. LadyB is seeking help from many young Thai creatives. All the models portrayed in LadyB had complete freedom to be represented as they desired. The diversity allowed models the freedom to express their ideas through portraits mixed with self-expression and social media in this exhibition.
Starting in 1995, Mattia Baldi, the esteemed photographer who splits his time between commercial and fine art tends to favour human rights, gender problems and new standards of beauty in advertising and fashion. His first publication is a photographic statement about different beauty standards called Casting: a Book About Women, published by Seipersei in 2020. In the LadyB project, he shared “I plan to make it a travelling exhibition and present this part of the Thai culture to the world. Nile Viralee, the exhibition curator shared “The models’ expressed themselves authentically. This remarkable exhibition has the unique ability to connect with a multigenerational audience and we are thrilled to be part of it”.
