Photographer's Note

Genocide in Cambodia

The history of Cambodia lives on but man seems to have learnt nothing. The idea of “Year Zero” …….. A new beginning where all belonged to know one except those with the vision. “The Killing Fields” show that man is still his worst enemy.

I wanted to create a hidden darkness with this image, something that was rough and hard and thought provoking. Look into the eyes; look into the sockets, that could have been you, that could have been your family.

The photograph was heavily cropped from the original, take a look at the URL below. Everything was over or under done, contrast, brightness and sharpening all combined to give that effect. What do you think?
