Peter Nitsch’s 'Shophouses' photographs show a living space collection that depicts Bangkok as a beehive. 4x8 meters -- the cramped dimensions of an average Bangkok shophouse -- are used both as a retail space and a home. As lovingly-photographed still life portraits by German artist Peter Nitsch, shophouses are family homes that are open to the world -- private and public, at once a market and a sanctuary of peace.

'Shophouses' by Peter Nitsch will be exhibited in Bangkok this August with the support of the German embassy in Bangkok.
