Based in Bangkok, Derek is working with a wide cross-section of Bangkok subjects. His portraits cross the lines between fine art, narrative, and personal portraits as studies of alluring expressions of the human face and mind. The photos seem directed, yet at the same time completely open and natural. The luminous light and deep shadows in the photos add a sense of dramatic studio environments and emotional depth. Together, the lights, shadows, and rich tonality serve to elicit dramatic emotional responses in the viewers. The quality of light and tonal contrast, when combined with mostly directional, ambient lighting supports a sense of drama. In his portraits design and composition become primary subjects within the frame, images are visually dynamic and could be viewed in terms of photographic design through the very purposeful use of tight cropping, editing, and positioning of the subject to fill the frame. He is known for his piercing portraits of Bangkok’s tomboys. The Tomboy Bangkok project features 65 portraits of women across the sexual identity spectrum. Forging a personal connection with his subjects, the artist shows us the power of breaking with societal norms, giving women the freedom to tell their own story in front of the camera.
