Artist's Description

Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum aka Security Prison 21 (S-21), March 2010 – Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia. A high school turned into a prison by the Khmer Rouge.

It was really upsetting visiting this place and learning about the torture and suffering the prisoners experienced during the regime. Looking through this doorway it seems to have a never ending path, constantly entering another decrepit doorway of suffering. The first doorway you step into darkness, and further along it disappears – as did many of the victims of S-21.

f-4, 1/20 sec, iso 100, focal length 26mm, nikon D80 with Nikkor 18-135mm lens. Slight editing to rotate image.
