about this work
Pink Man is a product and manifestation of the consumerism that Thai people practise nowadays. He’s self-centred, self-important, selfish, self… He’s the opposite of Lord Buddha’s teachings. He comes to me when I need him to act in my photography, like Superman or Batman coming to the rescue. 
(Manit Sriwanichpoom)
