By Shana Kongmun
Local photographer Marisa Marchitelli is known for her wonderful photos of local sites and unique handicrafts for the handmade chiangmai project as well as many others, recently debuted some of her many amazing photos of her trip through Central Asia late last year.
The stunning photographs reveal a world vastly different from the one we see here in Chiang Mai but peopled with faces that are as friendly and engaging as the ones we find here. The mosques, the palaces, the windswept views and wonderful Islamic art are all featured alongside interesting people that Marisa met in her travels. Having followed her travels on Facebook and then to see her exhibition upstairs at Sangdee Gallery inspires me to travel to these unfamiliar places, she brings out the charm and appeal of the unknown. A small exhibit but well worth the visit for travelers and those who wish they could travel alike. Sangdee Gallery is at Sirimangkalajarn Soi 5.

Some of Marisa’s evocative photos on display.
