Kars Tuinder

Ever since my childhood I was interested in photography.

At the age of 15 I started studying at the Photo academy in The Netherlands.
I’m already 25 years working as a photographer.
I received several national and international awards.

The last years I focus more on documentary photography.
I get inspired when I travel and connect with the local community.
Telling stories to capture social and political events with the purpose of informing the public is something I feel is important.

In 2017 this resulted in winning the Monovisions award and the National Geographic Public Award Benelux, category Human.

I am the owner of the Photohostel & Photocafe.

Photohostel & Photocafe is located in the 220 year old renovated Taiyuan building in Talat Noi, Chinatown. Next to the Chao Phraya river in Bangkok.
Have a look at our website; www.photohostel.com

You can stay in our rooms or visit our beautiful gallery and cafe.
Soon we will be organizing photography workshops and photo tours.
