If you’ve ever found yourself as a Bangkok newbie struggling to adjust to life in this wonderfully crazy city, you’re sure to empathise with the work of photographer Jean-Sebastien Faure that’s on show at this exhibition hosted by the Kathmandu gallery in Silom. Faure’s work depicts his own challenges in settling into Bangkok over the course of four years. Open Tuesday to Sunday, 11am-7pm; Pan Road (BTS Chong Nonsi);www.kathmanduphotobkk.com.
