From the Archive: Cambodia

From the Archive: Cambodia

In September 2007 I had the opportunity to travel to Cambodia for the first time. It was a short trip, just a couple days, but a totally life changing experience. Despite being pretty well traveled, Cambodia was my first Third-World experience. It opened my eyes to first-hand encounters with social issues that before I had only heard about.

This image is symbolic of Cambodia for me. I think of it as a beautiful country full of beautiful people that is struggling to overcome a bitter 20th century filled with hate, death, and destruction.
