Ayutthaya, The After Flood 2011

Monsoon season in Thailand 2011 was a devastating catastrophe. Ayutthaya was one of the worst affected province in Central Thailand. Temples were submerged in water as shown on television. The livelihood of the local were badly affected. Efforts were start to pull in during since early Nov, easing the situation such as infrastructures and factories.

Following the news from social media such as Facebook and Twitter. Plenty of Thailand images surfacing on the web. It was a relief to learn life is slowly back to normal for the local. Never been to Ayutthaya in my life. Been a travel and documentary photographer in Asia. I wanted to witness how the province was coping. With so many historical sites around Ayutthaya. What would it become? My thought was to document the raise of a revive Ayutthaya of the aftermath.

During the flood in Ayutthaya, Wat Phra Mahathat, the temple with the famous Buddha head wrapped by the tree roots.
