Xavier Comas  The House of Raja (series published in TIME Magazine) 2010

"In my journey through Thailand's troubled deep south, providence took me to Narathiwat town and finally to the house of the Raja. This once magnificent residence is now dilapidated, but still holds a haunting power that caught me in its spell as soon as I set foot in it. Its atmosphere of dignified solitude, shrouded in shadow and light, pulled me out from the conflict and bloodshed of the present into a dimension filled with timeless spirituality."
