The Human Connection

A young Cambodian boys smiles at the sight of a new playground installed at his school. With only two classrooms and a rudimentary soccer field, the addition of a homemade see-saw and swing set bring a smile to his face. A country once plagued by the brutal reign of the Khmer Rouge now moves into the future with hope. His smile reminds us of our commonality. Sometimes it's the simple things that give us the greatest pleasure. Taken in the summer of 2010 with 35mm film camera. Hand developed.
Location: A small village northeast of Phnom Penh, Cambodia
