Bei

Wat Leu, Sihanoukville, Cambodia, October 2015.  It was very peaceful at Wat Leu, located on a hill overlooking the port city of Sihanoukville. There were no tourists and no hassles, apart from the two boys on the left who followed me around, eventually asking me for some dollars. They were just trying to make a buck […]

Sinai

Sinai Peninsular, Egypt, December 2005: A short video documenting an excursion from Dahab on the Gulf of Aquaba- to Mount Sinai in the southern interior part of the peninsular. My travel companion and I were determined to do this independently using local transport, whether it be on the back of a 4WD or on the back of a […]

Ephesus

Ephesus, Turkey, 2005: On my second visit to Turkey in late 2005, I visited the ancient ruins & tourist mecca of Ephesus.  I was in the area staying in nearby Selçuk so it was rude not to check out this historically important 3000 year old city- despite the tourist hoards. Ephesus was an ancient Greek city near the coast of […]

Livissi

Kayaköy, Turkey, April 2003:  My first visit to the abandoned Greek village of Livissi in South-West Turkey. A previous post on this location can be found here.  Livissi/Kayaköy, is a village 8 km south of Fethiye in southwestern Turkey. In ancient times it was a city of Lycia. Later, Anatolian Greeks lived here until approximately 1922. The ghost […]

Tuol Sleng

Phnom Penh, Cambodia, April 2001:   The Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum in Phnom Penh was a former high school, converted into the notorious Security Prison 21 (S-21) by the Khmer Rouge regime from its rise to power in 1975 to its fall in 1979. Tuol Sleng appropriately means “Hill of the Poisonous Trees” and was just one of at least 150 execution […]

River Kids

Siem Reap, Cambodia, March 2001: While wandering aimlessly around the dusty streets of Siem Reap on a stinking hot afternoon, I photographed these local children fishing in the Siem Reap River. In 2001 Siem Reap was still a quiet, laid-back, dusty back water town- but on the cusp of huge changes. This was at a time before […]

Beirut

Beirut, Lebanon, Nov 2005: A video capturing some scenes from Beirut back in 2005. Beginning from entering the city from the north [Tripoli], to where I was staying near the former “Green Line“-  the start point for the 2005 Beirut Marathon. The Green Line was a demarcation through central Beirut during the Lebanese Civil War [1975-1990]. It separated the […]

Damascene

Damascus, Syria, Nov 2005:  Damascene refers to someone from Damascus- (alternatively it could be read as ‘Damascus Scenes’)- hence the title of this video. I was fortunate enough to visit Damascus in a relative time of peace- but in a matter of years the country would be torn apart, into a war  that does not seem […]
