Lung S. Liu: Muay Thai Culture

Lung S. Liu... Muay Thai Culture. "...There are countless Muay Thai (Thai Boxing) camps all over Thailand. It is impossible to visit them all and so I chose to show a small part of it — mere glimpses into the lives of these fighters. They are trained at an early age under a regimen so brutal that their bodies are rarely able to sustain careers past their twenties. And yet, despite what this life demands of them, they continue to fight — on the most basic of levels — for survival. They do it for the body, which is to be fed and sheltered, and they do it for the spirit, which is to be noticed and adored, the attainment of their dreams and desires." From Lung S. Liu.
