Chu Chutharut doesn’t need to be labeled as a “female photographer”. She is a photographer— subtle and simple—who has consistently been at the top of her game.
Chutharut’s demure manners and diminutive frame are in contrast of her strong, intense messages that she conveys through her well rounded body of works. She operates within the realm of subtlety, eccentricity, beauty and balanced humility that push her photographs and video works to emote passionately, digging deeply at human connections and relations. Every quiet depiction is dramatic. Every loud statement is subdued.
After completing her degree from Chulalongkorn University, a vigorous training under the helm of the revered photographer Punsiri Siriwetchapun and a short stint as an editorial photographer at Freeze Magazine, Chutharut decided to further her studies in fashion photography at London College of Fashion.
Since her return to Thailand, Chutharut has continue to work with the likes of Elle Thailand, Wallpaper Thailand, Billboard Thailand, Lips and Hamburger magazine among other leading publications. She shoots regularly for high-end Thai brands such as Sretsis, Greyhound, Milin, Vickteerut, Asava, ASV and some other well know brands.
Chutharut lives in Bangkok with her musician husband and a lot of cats.
