International School Bangkok Art teacher Basil Tahan was a key figure at this year’s convention; Mr. Tahan and his camera, that is. In addition to taking beautiful and creative team shots (from overhead while the team was arranged on the floor in the shape of a flower) Mr. Tahan attended every performance and event, as well as many workshops – with his camera.
His photos of the Cul Con Students at work and in performance are stunning. As one ISM student stated, “He managed to capture all of the key moments in our productions – without ever having seen the shows before!”
Please follow this link to view the photos from Dance, Drama and Art CulCon 2012. Page 1 begins with the creation of the Art Exhibition. Photos of Obscurum begin on page 18 and the collection and Indulto shots begin on page 21 with a few more Obscurum shots following after the play photos. I guarantee you will want to look at the photos from all of the performances and events. Here is a taste:
