PEACE, VIOLENCE AND VISITORS, CAMBODIA
These photographs are part of a larger project made in Cambodia in 2001 and 2003. The photographs reflect 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.
I sometimes went to the more popular tourist 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 one connection to lead to another.
