Kanachai Bencharongkul

Photographer and Managing Director, MOCA
Location: Thailand

Equally at ease in front or behind the camera, the dandy photographer, Kanachi or Kit, is also an entrepreneur, humanitarian and curator. The son of Boonchai Bencharongkul, President of DTAC (Thailand’s third largest mobile operator), he wants his work to promote Thailand’s art scene and contribute to charity. After graduating from a short course in Architectural Studies in London, and working for six months in New York – including breaking a lightbulb on the set of Law and Order – he has gone on to shoot for fashion magazines such as Lips, Monocle and E.. In 2017, his work with Myanmar refugees earned him the UNHCR “Stand with Refugees” Award. Currently, he is the managing director at MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art), another family’s business. He curated the 2017 "King of Kings" photo exhibition in tribute to the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej. Additionally, the LGBT supporter has hosted Who Are You on TV and launched his own sweater brand, Kit B. The keen cook and surfer has started directing short fashion films, such as ANAMNESIS (to be released in 2018), and hopes to explore this path further.

I'm hoping that the more message we spread and the more political rights we push for the LGBT community, the sooner we will get to live in equality where everyone is treated equally
