In addition to having a Thai flavour, has a common theme of the “pursuit of happiness”, which is one of the three “unalienable rights” in the United States of America’s Declaration of Independence* and a key principle of Buddhism. That such superficially conflicting forces of capitalism and religion share the same destination suggests the path to happiness may not be straightforward, and short cuts may be counter-productive.

Although Thailand is a welcoming, tolerant and spiritual place, Bangkok provides abundant opportunities for hedonism.  So, like the Yin-Yang, the “City of Angels” is a centre of energy, within which contrary but complementary forces co-exist.  Those who deviate from the true path may, after a period of trial and error, reach the same conclusion as William Blake, who wrote “The Road of Excess leads to the Palace of Wisdom”.  In short, the collection represents a visual journey: from Hedonism to Buddhism in Bangkok.

Richard was born in Aberdeen, Scotland and lives in Bangkok, Thailand.
