Culture Minister Sukumol Kunplome opened the Aug. 8-20 exhibit at the beachfront mall.

Titled “Born to this World,” the exhibit showcased 190 photographs taken by Her Royal Highness during trips around Thailand from 2010-11. Many of the photos focus on the hardship endured during last year’s devastating floods.
Photographic society Vice President Nittikorn Kraiwichien said the princess has long loved art and drew pictures of various scenes before she discovered photography.
