And now, some provocative new photography from Thailand that comments on its politics. Or on famous Thai photographer Manit Sriwanichpoom losing his hair and virility. Or on the “masculine vices of greed and lust” as expressed with Caravaggio-esque opulent nude photographs. There’s, um, a lot of suggested subtext floating around.

The leading photographer has been laying low and curating, since his horror film adaptation of Macbeth was banned by Thailand’s film board last year. His latest show at the H Gallery is just waiting to be banned. The Goddess of Democracy up here could be Yingluck Shinawatra, Thailand’s female prime minister. It’s just waiting to be banned. It’s even titled “Obscene,” like ban me, ban me, ban me!
