Natcha (Nannie) Wongchanglaw was born in Bangkok, Thailand in 1986, currently based in New York City. Wongchanglaw brings a professional background in studio and location portraiture to her current work as a lifestyle and documentary photographer. That experience has also included business management and recruitment, giving her a unique skill set that she has honed with advanced photographic coursework at Michigan State University and the Nikon School in her native Thailand, and more recently with her master’s in digital photography degree from New York’s prestigious School of Visual Arts. This intensive program added state-of-the-art capture and printing expertise to her photographic talents. Wongchanglaw is the 2020 grand prize winner of the Fujifilm Students of Storytelling contest and also the winner of the 2020 Critics’ Choice Award - LensCulture. Her most recent project, Postcards from Fremont, is a study of American life in the small Michigan town where she lived as an exchange student years ago, exploring the relationship between memories of the past and the realities of the present. The project is currently exhibited at Photoville (Brooklyn Bridge Park) and held online at parallel-adaptations.com and galleries.sva.edu/parallel-adaptations. The virtual reception is watchable at this link.
