Benz Thanachart is a filmmaker from Thailand who is also a photographer at the same time. He is currently living in New York City. In this unusual but creative photo project ‘’Smartphone’’, for each photo, he boarded a subway train, screamed a completely random word, and snapped a photograph to document the passengers’ startled reactions. After each scream he thanked the passengers for their participation which is really kind.
About the project,he says;’’ After staying in New York City for one year, I went back to Thailand in the summer of 2012. The biggest thing I noticed was that several people now own smart phones. On the public transportation, they were always obsessed with the little personal space on their hand. Everybody was looking down and cut off from the outside world. At that time although I was being in my hometown, a feeling of unfarmiliarity gradually emerged. I decided to do something to express that disoriented emotion. I got into the subway, shouted out a random word completely unrelated to the situation and then captured that moment. It was the moment when everyone was coming out of their small worlds and noticing the presence of public space.’’
