jungle temples [beautiful & broken]

at ta prohm temple we observed the epic struggle of the jungle reclaiming its territory (in slow motion).

uprooting the massive temple in a strangely twisting, bulbous & yet enchanting embrace.

it seems a fitting metaphor for cambodia itself.

beautiful.
&.
broken.

jungle + temple





jungle + temple

When you can't see the tops of the trees, it looks like they're Cloverfield's arms reaching down and crushing the temple.
