"Cumulus," the new exhibition by Harit Srikhao.
The collection guides viewers on an exploration of Harit's early work.
It compiles photographs, notes, and diary entries from his high school and university years, covering a period from 2009 to 2016. "Cumulus" captures an eight-year long journey, offering glimpses into the transition from adolescence to adulthood. The images depict moments that resonate with surroundings and experiences of growing up. Along with images from before and after the major flooding event in 2011, the photography diary provides a visual connection to Harit's growth and transformation, emotions and vulnerabilities, and the meaning of family and friendship.
