Cambodge

Cambodge

Cambodge deconstructs traditional notions of beauty and abject, the sorrowful and the stark. The series takes place throughout Cambodia, taken in locations that were subject to genocide, much of which is hidden from public view.

This series flows into Where the Water Once Was, where I witnessed the (previously prosperous) geological site of Boeung Kak lake filled-in with sand and being plotted for development. The development plans for the lake attributed to the forced – and violent – relocation of the majority of its occupants, with only a few people still living on its shores.
