THAILAND THE NORTH

PONGPAWAI, DENCHAI PHRAE

These images were all shot around the area of Pong Pawai and Dencha in the northern province of Phrae. This area is rice growing country and I was fortunate to be able to photograph as few of the famers completing the harvest. The North of Thailand is also where Songkran or the water festival originates for Tai New Year in April. There are plenty of parties, carnivals and ceremonies including monk washing. these images are all film mainly 35mm but with some 645 format.
