Timeless, limitless 14 x 20 inch images of one of the world's most mystical places, accompanied by the poetry of Helen Ibbitson Jessup. Like the makers of the sacred image of Buddha, who utter three prayers for each stroke of the carving tool, Kenro Izu considers the act of picturemaking a type of divine practice, capturing essence and light. After making numerous trips to Angkor Wat, Izu, who was deeply moved by his encounters with the Cambodian children, decided to give something back to the country by creating a notforprofit organization, Friends Without A Border, dedicated to building and operating Angkor Hospital for Children. All proceeds from this book go to the hospital.
