All three pillars of Thailand as depicted on the national flag: ‘Nation – Religion – Monarchy’, have been passing through the ‘Tunnel of Transition’ in an unprecedented manner.
This tunnel has further dimmed and lengthened after the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) staged a coup d’etat against elected businessmen-cum-politicians on 22 May 2014.
No wonder ordinary citizens – economy class passengers on the ‘Thai High-Speed Train’-- are falling prey to a panic attack. The ruled live in fear that this nightmarish train will forever circle the dark maze of power, greed and violence with no exit insight.
Fearful yet fearlessly uncompromising, and deeply moving, ‘Fear’ comprises 10 photographic series and 2 videos that Manit Sriwanichpoom has been producing through the upheavals, from Thailand’s last election in 2011 until the recent solar eclipse of March 9, 2016.
