Supported by LGBT foundation APCOM, Norm Yip's exhibition explores the meaning of masculinity

What makes one a man or a woman? This is one of the fundamental questions discussed by both laymen and the academia. Canadian-born-Chinese visual artist Norm Yip discusses the issue of masculinity in his work, which comprise of provoking photography. The internationally acclaimed photographer, along with curator James Tong, is presenting a series of 25 images taken over a course of 20 years starting from 1999 until present day at the River City Bangkok. Divided into five themes—Anatomy, Erotique, Fluidity, Indulgence, One and Soul—"Beyond Skin by Norm Yip" explores much beyond the skin of men.  

Exploring more than just the bodies of biological males, the collection of portraits also features for instance, well known trans figure Npak Maha-Udomporn, challenging the concept of biological sex itself.

The exhibition is made possible with the cooperation of pro-LGBT non-profit organisation, APCOM.  Ten percent of the revenue earned from each photograph sold will be donated towards care and treatment of gay men with HIV. View "Beyond Skin by Norm Yip" at the RCB Photography's Gallery on the second floor of River City Bangkok until May 31. The exhibition's next stop will be New York in June—in time for World Pride Month.
