TEDxKrungthep - Elizabeth Briel - "Handmade in a Digital World"

Elizabeth Briel is an artist who explores Asia with her camera, notebook, and paintbrushes. She prints 19th-century photos of disappearing places in distinctive blue tones, paints pictures of sharp-witted women from around the world, and writes about the arts of Asia. While living in Cambodia she taught photography to street children; in Hong Kong she founded a community gallery; and she now works from a Bangkok studio. ThingsAsian Press has published her illustrations and photos in books, and in 2011 will release her book Sensual Papers: a Quest Through the Back Roads and Rivers of Thailand, Laos and Vietnam about her search for handmade papers and the people who make them. She continually experiments with ways to connect artists to communities, and building bridges of understanding between West, East and places in between -- we all have more in common than it may seem at first glance. Elizabeth is based in Bangkok and Sydney.
