Faith, Violence and Visitors
These images are part of a larger project made in Cambodia in 2001 and 2003. They are found moments in the lives of people in and around the vast ancient Khmer temples of Angkor, a UNESCO world heritage site. I sought to understand something of their faith, the effect of tourism, and the legacy of genocide and violence in daily life.
Sometimes I went to the popular spots. I also found lesser-known villages, hidden in the jungle along the narrow paths between temples. These photos arose from research, intuitive wandering and an openness to allow oneconnection to lead to another.
