Founding Member of SoMad


Serichai is a photographer and a founding member of SoMad. Like many artists and creatives, Covid-19 had a devastating effect on their career causing them to pivot. As a founding member of SoMad, they realized the incredible opportunity to transform what started as a shared artist studio into a hub for New York’s emerging artists. 

During the uprisings of 2020 they photographed and interviewed attendees of protests and rallies for W and Paper Magazine. Like many grappling with the extreme disparities exposed by the state of unrest, they began to unpack the micro-aggressions they experienced working high profile fashion and social events because of their visibly queer identity and mixed race background (half Thai / half white).
