Photographer's Note

Bayon is in the centre of Angkor Thom, a place of stooped corridors, precipitous flights of stairs and, best of all, a collection of 54 gothic towers decorated with 216 enormous smilling faces, which is said to be resemblance to the great king, Jayavarman VII, who built this temple. As you walk around, a dozen or more of the heads are visible at any one time, profile or full-face, glaring you from every angle, smiling quietly and coldly. It's such an unique and powerful place, being visited by thousands of travelers all over the world everyday.
