Photographer's Note

Ta Prohm is the Jungle Temple in Cambodia. It was the backdrop and setting for the movie Lara Croft. It is an amazing ruin which was burned deep within the jungle for many years. There is still an ongoing conservation argument about how much they should preserve and how much they should allow nature to take its course. I felt the antiquing effect worked particular well with the aged subject matter.
The best time to see Ta Prohm is early morning- after doing a sunrise photo shoot of Angkor Wat- most of the tourists head back to their hotels for a lovely breakfast but you can ,instead, visit Ta Prohm in the early morning light with few other visitors.
