I met this monk named Robert at Angkor Wat and talked with him for a while whilst watching the sun go down. He was a nice guy and was forever getting asked to pose for photo's. I snapped this one while he was posing for a Russian bird.
On the border of the beautiful Kirirom National Park in Kampong Speu province, this eco-tourist village, initially set up with support from Oxfam, through Mlup Baitong is now completely self-sustaining. A wonderful, friendly place to visit. Visit http://www.geocities.com/chambokcbet/ to find out more.
Established in May 1976, this former school became the primary security institution, specifically designed for the interrogation and extermination of anybody perceived to be ‘anti-Angkar’ (anti-state, or government). The conditions were appalling and the details of torture procedures hideous; entire families were exterminated simply because of their relationship to individual prisoners. The majority of guards were children aged between 10 to 15 years old, many of whom subsequently became victims. Originally a high school called Ponhea Yat, during its time as S-21 to 1978, it is estimated that 10,500 prisoners plus 2,000 children were killed by the KR regime at Tuol Sleng.
Draped in the white linen is a sick child who is being "treated" by a monk, chanting prayers while conducting a ritual.Consent was sought before I proceeded to video tape as well as photograph the ceremony in Kompong Phluk, a village on stilts by the banks of Rolous River in Siem Reap. The ceremony, in the blistering heat of the noonday sun, lasted about half an hour.While chanting prayers, the monk walked around the child,stopping to sweep the leafy twigs over the linen, and pouring "holy water" over the child's head. The child's (a boy) family members and siblings watched the ceremony...
