Photographer's Note

Every year at the beginning of the ninth lunar month, the people of Phuket participate in the Phuket Vegetarian Festival. Ten days of purification rituals such as hot oil bathing, fire-walking and abstaining from eating meat include street processions during which the participants (in trances) walk through the streets with skewers, swords and a variety of other objects pierced through their cheeks in order to bring good luck on the community.
