Reading List: MAN-X

The latest issue of Man-X from Lope Navo is now available - this issue features an interview with filmmaker Ohm Phanphiroj.

“I encounter potential models everywhere - from streets to construction sites, with agencies serving as a secondary option..." says Ohm, in the interview. "Unfortunately, the realm of agencies often disappoints due to the restrictive and pretentious nature of some agents, leading me to prioritise direct encounters over agency channels.” 

As well as making films, Ohm is known for his photography - his work explores sexuality, identity, gender roles, age, and the male nude.

As well as the feature on Ohm, this 120-page May-Jun 2024 issue of MAN-X - ‘Boys, Sex, Bangkok’ - includes reviews of photobooks by TOM FORD, Paul Freeman, Bob Mizer, Slava Mogutin Art, Phil Dlab, and Joe Lally.
