365 is the number of days in a year, but for Ohm, it means more. He made a promise to himself to take a photo every day for 365 days, even during the COVID-19 pandemic, when many people were struggling to survive. For Ohm, this was a way to prove that he could accomplish something meaningful, even in the face of adversity.
This project is like a diary of Ohm's life throughout one year. It's not just about taking pictures of food and things at his job. It reflects many things, including what's happening around him and what's going on in his thoughts, emotions, and conscience. Ohm captured images of a dead fish being tested for COVID-19, junk food that looks just like real junk, unusual symbols in Thai society that many people understand, and some pictures that are hard to explain, even to Om himself. These pictures are like events that come and go, almost like imaginary stories that seem real. Some are really important on a national level, while others are as small as a dust from the perspective of others. But they are significant and can be understood best by someone who faces these situations alone.
Anawat Petchdomsinsuk (Ohm) was born in the year 1994 and lives in Bangkok. He graduated from the Faculty of Architecture at Silpakorn University. Currently, he works as a freelance food photographer and is actively creating artistic works using food and objects as his primary medium.
