Bangkok, January 2016.

Tiane Doan na Champassak, Olivier Pin-Fat, Thomas Vandeberghe, Laura Rodari, Daisuke Yokota, Hiroshi Takizawa with publisher Alex Bocchetto met in Bangkok to collaborate towards a collective photobook.

1 month of shooting, 1 year in the making, 3AM is an experimental collective project unlike any others, a psychedelic experience brought to you by the long-term collaboration between AKINA and AM Projects.


Following a simple yet ambitious idea, AM Projects sailed for a collective shooting of one month in the same city, with AKINA publisher Alex Bocchetto tagging along with them.
HQ was set up in the crowded and infernal chaos of Chinatown, downtown Bangkok, but soon the collective dispersed through Siam square, Silom, Sukhumvit, the Riverside, each photographer setting their own personal quest and following their own individual visions.

Ice factories, concrete bridges, the city’s outskirts, go-go bars, the underground, the over-belly, expat hang-outs, abandoned luxury complexes, hotel rooms, lobbies and halls, crowded night markets, run-down brothels, the sweat, always the sweat, and the empty back-streets at dawn.

It started with no clear plan: just ideas and suggestions which led the crew in unexpected directions,  and cul-de-sacs, everybody engrossed on their own quests through ice factories, under concrete bridges, the city’s outskirts, go-go bars, the underground, the over-belly, expat hang-outs, abandoned luxury complexes, hotel rooms, lobbies and halls, crowded night markets, run-down brothels, the sweat, always the sweat, and the empty back-streets at dawn.
