Thai Youth Undercurrent is a documentary series which explores the lives of youth in contemporary Bangkok. The images are a result of dialogues between me and young people who, like myself, are in their early twenties. The series celebrates diversity among this young generation and also aims to become a useful tool for connecting people from various subcultures. Special relationships between the person in front of and behind the camera are revealed
