Cambodia - Day 1

The Killing Fields

This series of photos taken was probably the first time I was exposed to really interesting subjects but at the same time feel hopelessly helpless. You see someone dying and there's nothing you can really do to alleviate the situation. At that point of time, I was merely a student with a camera. And even after all these years, I am still wrestling with this issue.

Back in 2002, I had participated in an overseas community service project to Cambodia. Together with 20 Early Childhood and Engineering students from Ngee Ann Polytechnic, our task was to help refurbished an orphanage in Kompong Cham.

In the coming weeks, more photos will be uploaded from this trip.
The first stop we made after landing was at the Pol pot regime's Killing Fields.
