Book description

Cultures clashed and West was apparently winning the battle over East.

Yet, remarkably, Thai culture was still there to be found in unexpected places.

Not the light and sound spectaculars manufactured by the Tourist Authority

but traditions that had survived hundreds of year and would outlive Father

Christmas and Valentines day and, yes, the internet. When I first saw Josef’s

photographs, the memories of Thainess I thought lost were brought back to me.

Of course it’s all there but I’d been so snow blinded by the glitz and glamour of

development that I’d stopped noticing. I’d written about modern Thailand from time to time so I went in search of vignettes from my old essays

and stories that might compliment, but not distract from the fruits of Josef’s expert eye. This is aremarkable collection of photographs, rare in that

it does not belittle the country’s surviving culture nor make fun of its people. I have lef the selection of pieces to accompany these pictures to

Ajan Polleross although I know my words are woefully inadequate.
