Strangler Fig, Rilke’s Bayon. Siem Reap, Cambodia 2007.
The temples of Angkor Wat in Cambodia represent one of man’s most astonishing and enduring architectural achievements. Today, the temples exist in a neglected, semi-ruined state. The religious monuments have been left as they were found, preserved as an example of what an untamed tropical forest will do to an architectural monument when human hands are withdrawn.
