Teenage Pregnancy - Photo Exhibition by Tanaphon Ongarttrakul September 2016
Emerging photographer 'Gap' Tanaphon Ongarttrakul is currently pursuing a fine arts degree at Rangsit University and is a photographer interning at the Bangkok Post. Originally from Phetchaburi, Thailand, he currently is based in Rangsit.

In his long-term photographic essay on teenage pregnancy, Gap offers an unprecedented look at those at the heart of the issue in Thailand, which is the second leading ASEAN country for unplanned teenage pregnancy. The photos are an intimate testament to the struggles of young mothers and fathers faced with overwhelming and unexpected responsibilities. Through his honest depiction, we are shown the challenges and isolation of three pairs of teenage parents amidst this epidemic, but in that loneliness, glimpses of hope and love in the form of community and human perseverance.
The FCCT, 'Battle of the Bureaus' pub quiz happens every third Thursday of the month (unless announced otherwise). Test your mettle against the best of the Foreign Correspondents' Club of Thailand. Prizes include bottles of wine.
