Parallel to his personal photographic practice, Tiane Doan na Champassak, a French artist of Asian origin, collects and explores anonymous images from a variety of sources including internet, family albums and magazines excerpts. In a previous book called Siams’s Guy, he paid a tribute to the aesthetics of Thai erotic magazines from the 60s and 70s. As required by the custom of those years, he censored his own nude photographs by cutting out from the print all the details showing breasts and genitals.Scraps continues this project. It contains all the nipples and genitals cut out from the previous Siam’s Guy book, showing them decontextualized, like abstract forms.
