Photography enthusiasts in Bangkok have a new place to gather, share their pictures and view the pros.

YellowKorner, a France-based chain of “contemporary lifestyle galleries”, now has a branch on Level 4 at the EmQuartier, the first in Thailand. 

YellowKorner provides a one-stop service. You can but limited edition landscapes, portraits and shots of cars, animals, architecture and much more. 

There’s a catalogue for easy browsing, ideal for people just moving into a new home or apartment. 

At the same time, YellowKorner provides a springboard for aspiring photographers while also promoting internationally renowned masters.

The latest edition is “Superheroes”, a series by Russian Ilya Nodia and Frenchman Benoit Lapray. 

Nodia plucks from various sources of inspiration for his mainly cinematic portraits. He captures scientists deep in thought about artificial intelligence and ordinary people disguised as superheroes in masterfully lit, costumed and framed scenes.

“I’m attracted to people and their pasts, dramatic scenes and challenges,” he says. “I like cinematic style and try to create my works based on my feelings and experiences.”

Lapray studied photography in Lyon and worked in advertising in Lyon, where he spent time in the surrounding mountains. His 2010 series “The Quest for the Absolute” has superheroes from American comics pictured in grandiose landscapes. 

“The Widlife” (2016) photos were taken in the business district of Paris, a concrete jungle here populated with terrifying dinosaurs.

Each format has its own specific limit (numbered editions of 50 to 5,000 copies). Customers can choose the size, format and finish in the online gallery, where images can be visualised from every angle and presented within the context of a room. 

You can place an order in three clicks, upload your own photo to, choose format and finish, and finalise the purchase. 

The gallery delivers your photograph from France by courier within two weeks. And a photo expert optimises the resolution and colours to ensure the final rendering is of the highest quality. 

YellowKorner has more than 80 galleries from the United States to China.
