Shoot: Child with Krathong in Bangkok

GP02DXE
A child holds a Krathong, a ceremonial float made of water hyacinths, as she pays respect to the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok. This photo was taken to represent how the well-being of Thailand's most iconic river is close to the heart of the Thai people. The actual Loy Krathong festival takes place in November at the end of the rainy season. The festival, which honors the Goddess of Water, Phra Mae Khongkha, is used as an occasion to promote public awareness on water protection. The photo was commissioned for the launch of 'Hidden Consequences', a Greenpeace report that shines a spotlight on the polluted conditions of many of our iconic rivers. The report calls for urgent action to protect the livelihoods of the people and wildlife that depend on these waterways, and the life-sustaining resources they provide, by demanding that policy makers commit to a Toxic-Free Future.
