Kingdom's Edge


"Kingdom's Edge represents British photojournalist Richard Humphries' eight year journey documenting Thailand's Deep South region.

Through his book of the same name, and this collection of 15 colour photographs, Richard, a fluent Malay speaker, examines the complex intricacies and subtle incongruities of daily life in South East Asia's deadliest conflict.

Moving away from the mainstream coverage, Richard has found a region that teems and bustles with life and culture. It is a region of trade and commerce, of young people and free wifi, of tea shops and markets. A place where tudong clad girls ride four on a motorbike, where twice a day people freeze on the spot to the sound of the national anthem, and where the call to prayer fills the air five times a day. It is a complex society that is both Muslim and Buddhist, Malay and Thai. It is both old and youthful, calm and restive. It is a place that has more in common with Kuala Lumpur than distant Bangkok. Through this visual narrative, Richard presents a timely and alternative view from one of the world's most underreported conflict zones, a largely forgotten pocket of territory at the farthest edge of the Kingdom of Thailand."
