Songkran

I have survived Songkran! Songkran is a three-day, nation-wide water fight celebrating the Thai New Year. The themes of Songkran are similar to those of Easter, of transformation and new beginnings; everyone is doused in water to symbolise purification and the cleansing of sins and bad luck. It is a communal affair during which no one is safe (at any time) from a bucket of icy cold water! 

This first image is of my friend Nieves, who joined me in Khao San today. The second is a relief print from my exhibition next week.
