H.M. King Chulalongkorn 1,500 Baht

H.M. King Chulalongkorn, The Father of Thai Photography

By Professor Sakda Siripant

Dual Language - Thai and English

Professor Sakda shows in this study the importance of King Chulalongkorn in the early days of photography in Thailand. An amazing collection of period photographs accompanies the text, which is in both Thai and English.

From the introduction by Prof. Sakda Siripant

My inspiration for writing this book H.M. King Chulalongkorn, The Father of Thai Photography originated from the fact that I had previously authored Kings and Cameras - an evolution of photography in Thailand during 1845 and 1992, which was created from twelve years of research. Over this decade, I studied from microfilm documents, historical photographs, newspaper photographs, National Archives of Thailand, international archives, international libraries, international museums, national libraries and private photograph collectors in the country and abroad. After Kings and Cameras had been published a lot of valuable historical photographs from the reigns of King Rama IV and King Ram V were still left unused. ... Furthermore,  I am very fortunate that the heir of the court photographer in the Fifth Reign, Mr. E. Groote, has given me the "Siam" photo album from the fifth reign, received documents and historical photographs from the Fourth Reign from a variety of people, one of whom is Dr. J. Y. Trehin, a French historian, who revealed that Mr. Pierre Rossier was the first person to have brought wet plate photography to Siam in 1861... These documents and photos are published in this book for the first time.
