Artist's Description

  1. Nikon D700 with Nikkor 24-70mm zoom lens

Hellfire Pass is the name of a railway cutting, and part of the infamous Death Railway, also known as the Thai-Burma railway. It was built during 1942, using Allied prisoners-of-war, and later on, enforced local labourers.

It is so called because the sight of emaciated prisoners, working at night by torchlight, was said to resemble a scene from Hell.

In total about 12,000 prisoners & 90,000 labourers died constructing this 415km railway, about 1 man for every sleeper laid.
