A Boy’s Day in Cambodia

Imagine. Close your eyes and imagine you are a child in Cambodia. As you walk through the streets of the city and the villages, what might you see?

As I was going through my photos I had taken from my trip to Cambodia, I came across the photo of the little boy with his toy moto. Looking through the rest of my photos, I began to imagine myself as a young boy on the streets of Cambodia. The harsh reality is most children are left to fend for themselves. Protection, stability, and rest is not the reality for many of Cambodia’s children.  My goal for this series is to give you a glimpse into the daily lives of these children.
