      Oops I meant this comment for the photo of Issac Hays. Some of them are not labeled with names and so I’m guessing as to who they are, but pretty sure I’ve pegged them.

    These are fantastic photos.

    It makes me stop and think of how different we would look at these people if they were in today’s world with the over saturation of media coverage. What makes these photos so cool is the fact that they have had limited exposure. Some of them I have seen before and others are being viewed for the first time. That is increasingly rare these days, when a celeb sneezes its shot, uploaded, color corrected and sent across the globe.

    I think it looses its cool quality when that happens today. These hold a certain weight that today doesn’t have.

    A nice set of portraits. I don’t want to state the obvious but a large part of the ‘look’ of these images and what makes them stand out is because they’re shot on film. Pay attention kids.

    Ofcourse they are Reg Varney, no debates there. I can see that you equate failing to mention with injustice! To each, their charming eccentricities! Besides if you actually read Andrew’s blog, it’s on the PAD and not on other groups so I am not completely sure why you raised those points considering you are well aware of their inherent differences. I added the suffix “ultra” to differentiate PAD as Andrew added the “(S)”. For me it is an broad reflection of Thailand’s overall “Sufficient” (in Andrew’s twist, not the original) Democracy that middle-class Bangkokian protesters can bring down governments, poor rural protestors are totally ignored (such the many years of the Assembly of the Poor you mentioned), while Southern ones get massacred.
