The Nine Emperor Gods Festival begins on the eve of ninth lunar month of the Chinese calendar. The Chinese community believe that abstinence from meat will help them obtain good health and peace of mind.

This exciting festival in not for the faint-hearted.

Unlike Phuket Vegetarian Festival which is geared towards tourists, there is very little English information about the Krabi festival, hence few Westerners attend.

Wampo Viaduct on the Death Railway in Kanchanaburi province, Thailand was built by Alied POWs during World War II. The bridge was part of the original Burma Railway which ran from Ban Pong, Thailand to Thanbyuzayat in Burma.

It’s not street photography. In this project, I try to capture the feel of everyday life in South East Asia.

I was inspired by Nick DeWolf’s photo trips to SE Asia in the early 1970s… but obviously time marches on and South East Asia has changed considerably.
