Father & Son

A charming portrait of a father and son visiting the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

The actual name in the Khmer language is “Preah Barum Reachea Veang Chaktomuk” but you can see why most people would refer to it as “The Palace.” More than a palace, it is actually a complex of buildings that together comprise this white walled city amidst the country’s capital. Like most of Cambodia’s treasures, the palace only became available for public use recently after the Khmer Rogue’s reign ended. I came to see a lot of the horrors that they inflicted on their country, but at this moment I was watching a proud young father gazing out toward the unlimited potential for his son.
