I couldn’t find any information about Anak Navaraj, save for his/her website. I’m not certain that he/she is from Thailand but the pictures on his/her website captured my attention. I would be happy if someone could furbish me with more information.

I find myself strangely attracted to effective diptychs recently. There is something about the extra meanings carefully weaved into the chosen images. I find myself guessing the photographer’s intention when choosing a particular pair of images, often creating my own interpretations. I have not formally tried creating my own diptychs and perhaps I will look through my archives soon. Maybe I will discover new images from my otherwise bland-looking singles.
Check out Julian Thomas’ Three Part Inventions where he builds up a narrative from the places in his photos.
Edit: It has been confirmed that Anak is in fact a Thai, currently based in NYC. He shoots travel and documentary work, after graduating from Pratt Institute, with a MFA in Photography. He has recently done work for Thai Airways.
