Description

Organized by the Photographic Resource Center, Boston University, in cooperation with the Photo Archive Group, El Segundo, CA.
One-hundred provoking and poignant photographs of prisoners, taken prior to their brutal deaths at the hands of the Khmer Rouge that ruled Cambodia in the late 1970s. The portraits represent only a small fraction of those executed and are an extraordinary reminder of the pathology and brutality that characterized that time.
