The temples of Angkor are among the most beautiful, mysterious and awe-inspiring achievements on Earth. They exist in a lost world of stone gods and intricately carved demons dating back to the Khmer Empire that is buried deep in the jungles of southeast Asia.
Entwined in a silent struggle with the forces of nature, these magnificent temples mimic the plight of the Cambodian people as they fight to escape the long shadow of Pol Pot's infamous dictatorship.
From religious glory and downfall, through modern tragedy and into a new generation of hope and tourism, James King's collection of personal images represents a nation at once timeless and in the throes of violent change.
'Khmer - Shadow in the Ruins' will transport you to a realm of mystery and adventure that will haunt your dreams for ever.
