Lord of the Flies Inspired Photoshoot


I am pleased to present my own photographic interpretation of the amazing novel Lord of the Flies.  In this version a group of 9 Thai Boy Scouts are stranded on an island in Thailand due to their passenger ferry capsizing in the Gulf of Thailand.  These 9 boys are the only survivors.

Lord of the Flies is a 1954 novel by Nobel British author William Golding. The book focuses on a group of British boys stranded on an unknown & deserted island.   The novel was not immediately well received but went on to become a best seller and has been adapted into two English movies in 1963 and 1990.  This was Mr. Golding’s first novel.
