Kamonlak Sukchai Questions the Lasting Influence of Folklore

Passed down from generation to generation, local folklore act as symbolic myths to illustrate traditional, religious, and cultural beliefs. In her series “Red Lotus,” Thai photographer Kamonlak Sukhai questions why certain myths continue to be pressed upon new generations without being questioned or investigated. “These myths,” she explains, “some are fictional and some are based on true stories to reflect on social structures of the past, therefore culture and tradition are over somewhat exaggerated through the beliefs of Buddhism, Brahms and Animism (Spiritual), this also includes how sexuality is viewed.”
