English edition
This publication by photographer Giovanna Silva and writer Peter Fröeberg Idling retraces the history of Cambodia, creating a fictional and personal story that looks at the country through the eyes of the two authors. Today's Phnom Penh cityscape photographs take on a singular dimension in comparison to the ruins of Khmer temples, with a sense of emptiness and abandonment that resonates with the invasion of Phnom Penh by the Khmer Rouge in 1975.
