Walking Wounded
Cambodia is a desperately poor place which in the past 30 years has suffered invasion by neighbors, civil war, and self-inflected genocide obliterating one-third of the population. While these tragic events have ultimately been relegated to historians repertoire, one threat still remains, the pervasive landmine. Along with Angola and Afghanistan, Cambodia shares the distinction as being one of the most heavily landmined countries in the world. During the next three weeks, I will be exploring life in Cambodia with my camera to better understand and appreciate the impact living with landmines has on these impecunious, hand-to-mouth people.
