Traditional Thai historians considered the foundation of the Sukhothai kingdom as the beginning of their nation because little was known about the kingdoms prior to Sukhothai. Modern historical studies demonstrate that Thai history began before Sukhothai. Yet the foundation of Sukhothai is still a celebrated event.
I visit the Historical Park of Sukhothai frequently since 25 years. Before you had to pay a locals half day income entry fee, I did like to go there in the evening to enjoy its relaxed and calm atmosphere. Over the years I created a series of photographs in a classic b&w style. Later I started to capture the beauty of the Park in color and will perform with people in historical dresses in the furure. This project will go on as long as I visit the park.
