Joyful Phi Ta Khon

Joyful Phi Ta Khon

Phi Ta Khon (Ghost festival) is a three-day event that takes place in Dansai in Thailand’s northern province Loei. Essentially, it’s a series of fertility rituals to invoke enough rain during the upcoming rainy season and ensure plentiful harvest. The highlight of the festival is a colorful street procession where revellers dressed up as ghosts and other magical creatures cheerfully make their way to the Pon Chai temple.

This series contains images taken in 2014 and 2015.
