This work is from a exhibition of 80 photographs and text, called Cambodia: Crossing the River, documenting Cambodia from a development perspective. I first visited the country in 1991 to photograph the re-construction of classical dance at the Royal University of Fine Arts, Phnom Penh and have subsequently traveled back six times, most recently in 2008 to again document, Khmer classical dance.
