Rooted in antiquity - Ta Prohm by 

Ta Prohm is the modern name of a temple at Angkor ,Cambodia. It was built in the Bayon style largely in the late 12th and early 13th centuries. It is located approximately one kilometre east of Angkor Thom on the southern edge of the East Baray near Tonle Bati. Unlike most of the Angkorian temples, Ta Prohm has been left in much the same condition in which it was found. The photogenic and atmospheric combination of trees growing out of the ruins and the jungle surroundings provided the perfect site for the film “Tom Raiders”. In fact this scene (in my photo) featured in the film and I was told that the main actress emerged from the opening to left of the roots.

I thought the sunlight reflecting down the roots added to the atmosphere of nature reclaiming its own.

For me photography is a way to record a moment in time that will never be repeated in exactly the same way ever again. My subjects are from everyday life in Australia and from my travels. I enjoy capturing the essence of the environment and people. My work is a very personal statement of my perspective of the world around me and thus they reveal something about who I am.
