News Screen Diary - An analysis of the news through images during lockdown by Manit Sriwanichpoom


Engage in a conversation with Thai photo artist Manit Sriwanichpoom as he talks about how the current crisis is affecting humans, global reactions to the pandemic and his new ongoing project during this lockdown - News Screen Diary.


"On 26th March 2020, the Thai government declared a state of emergency to control the COVID outbreak, and the country went under complete lockdown. It was strange to be at home and watch the number of deaths and infection cases rise on TV. After some days, I started capturing these news screens on my mobile camera to make a photo diary of the global war against an invisible enemy, COVID – 19." - Manit Sriwanichpoom
