About the Book
Sepia prints of Angkor Wat in Cambodia. 20 pages of images of Angkor Wat. This is a compilation of images made at Angkor Wat, Cambodia. Built between the 9th and 12th centures, Angkor, (meaning Capital City of Holy City), has come to refer to the capital city of the Khmer Empire that existed in the vicinity of Siem Reap, Cambodia. The temple ruins are scattered over a 60 square mile area and represent the pinnacle of the ancient Khmer architecture, art, and civiliation and are most spiritual.
Having discovered photography in high school, my interest has continued over the years. I have had experience with large format cameras (4x5), medium format cameras (2-1/4) and small format cameras (35mm), but now have advanced to digital cameras. This type of photography allows for using a "dry darkroom" - the computer. The ease of shooting the picture, immediately evaluating, cropping and enhancing the image is very exciting. After years of working in a wet darkroom, the change is not only cleaner, but offers more flexibility. Because computers can do far more things than conventional photography, the digital world allows far more creativity. Working in my own graphics and typesetting business for over 30 years gave me an early introduction to computers and the sophistication of the new graphics programs. I have taken thousands of images and these books have given me incentive to find new models to photograph, so this will be a continuing process.
