Thai Politics no.3 includes images taken of graffitied election posters found along the streets of Bangkok. The promotional posters show the intense frustration between opposing supporters of Yingluck Shinawatra’s Pheu Thai Party and Abhisit Vejjajiva’s Democrat party during the 2011 election.
‘Thai Politics’ is an ongoing series developed from the first major protest in Bangkok since 2006. Whilst exploring the differing political attitudes in Bangkok, the project also examines photography within an image rich world. Punctuating each addition to the series is not only a different dimension to people’s political views and behaviours, but also a different approach to how they are captured and presented. This includes curating images found across social media (Thai Politics no.2, 4, 7, 8 and 9) to the more traditional approach of digital and film photography (Thai politics no.1, 3, 5 and 6).
