Help us get our book published.

Kickstarter an all-or-nothing funding model. If our project doesn’t reach its goal, then funds don’t get collected, and no money changes hands.

Chinese Shrines Phuket Thailand

Chinese Folk Religion

Book will document the shrines with emphasis on beauty .

I started visiting the shrines out of curiosity and photographing them several years ago. Certainly nothing like them in the USA. Coming from the Phuket International Airport on the main highway is Tha Rue. Most of the shrines are off the tourist path. Side streets and allies.

Kickstarter is a crowd source company for artist , writers, creative projects.

Multiple rewards for backers.

Book will be available as PDF, eBook and a hard copy. Approximately 80 to 120 pages. 8×10 image wrap cover printed by Blurb.

Mostly full page spread and some across double page. Printed on quality paper. Will add description each shrine and location.

My Goal is to preserve my art for my children in a physical format where they actually can hold vs digital format.

Please support us. Patty and Jojo and me . By supporting us you become an important member of our team. Could not do this project without you. Thank You.

I learned about the school and the need when a friend ask me to join her to go to Pak Ping Church in Phang-Nga Thailand.  Located just north of Phuket Island. She was giving the sermon that morning. If you are at Khao Lak for a holiday , they speak english so a friendly place for tourist.

But today I want to write about Khao Lak Christian Bilingual School Project which Pak Ping Church is building.  Their goal and the need for the school. 

We support this project. Please donate if possible and share the information.

There is a preschool there now but in process of building a primary English language school.

Visited a Thai family in a small village near Phimai and they took me there. What a great day. Most of my photos that day was focused on the family. I plan on making another trip here in October.  

Text from Wikipedia 

The Phimai historical park(Thai: ปราสาทหินพิมาย) protects one of the most importantKhmer temples of Thailand. It is located in the town of PhimaiNakhon Ratchasima province.

The temple marks one end of the Ancient Khmer Highwayfrom Angkor. As the enclosed area of 1020x580m is comparable with that of Angkor Wat, Phimai must have been an important city in the Khmer empire. Most buildings are from the late 11th to the late 12th century, built in the Baphuon, Bayon and Angkor Wat style. However, even though the Khmer at that time were Hindu, the temple was built as a Buddhist temple, as Buddhism in the Khorat area dated back to the 7th century. 

Want to thank Jaeb Na Ka and her family

There are several hotels in Phimai. 

We recommend Phimai Inn Hotel as that is the only one familiar with. Good food and nice pool.
