Photographer #137: Manit Sriwanichpoom

Manit Sriwanichpoom, 1961, Thailand, is a photographer as much as an activist. He got international recognition for his series This Bloodless War in 1997. Iconic images were re-enacted and the issue of consumerism was added. In 1997 Manit also invented the Pink Man and has since then never stopped making series about the Pink Man. This man in a pink suit has become the icon for consumerism, walking around as a robot with a shopping cart. It is impressive to see the entire body of work of the Pink Man. The following images come from Horror in Pink 2001, Ordinary Extraordinary and Thailand, Masters.
