I saw a lot of this in Aug Sept 2014 in Cambodia. From the Killing Fields entrance to museums of Land Mines. I did document the journey. Great to find you here. S 21 in Phnom Penh for the thousands that suffer for no reason. Just great documentation, Thanks

John, I came across your work just by chance and let me say that you have one of the best images so far I have seen on PBASE (I have been browsing actively for over an year). This is a specially powerful image. I am so touched that I do not have words in praise of this image.
