The sixth stop of the Hong Kong Photobook Award Touring exhibition – an independent photo bookstore in Thailand.
After completing its journey in Taiwan, The Hong Kong Photobook touring exhibition’s sixth stop will exhibit 12 dummy photobooks on April 28 at Vacilando Bookshop.
Vacilando Bookshop was founded in 2017. For the first 3 years, Vacilando Bookshop operated as an online platform on Instagram only and participated in Bangkok. From 2019 to early 2021 Vacilando Bookshop shared space with Books & Belongings, another independent bookstore in Bangkok that specializes in Literature and Philosophy books.
Later in 2021 Vacilando Bookshop landed in its new location nearby Bangkok’s Chinatown. By using the new physical bookshop space, Vacilando Bookshop provides a reading space with a small photobook library and also creates events related to Photography, Photobook launch, Photobook club reading group to get connected with domestic photographers and non-photographers who are interested in photography together.
The concept of the Vacilando bookstore coincides with the idea of the Hong Kong Photobook Festival, which aims to promote cultural books on photography and create a platform for photographers and artists to collaborate and exchange their ideas.
