Angkor in Cambodia is the largest religious site in the world. Built for King Suryavarman II in the early twelfth-century, it has remained in constant use since its foundation -- first as a Hindu temple, then as a Buddhist temple. This is the masterpiece of Khmer architecture. Its galleries, enclosures, cloisters and pavilions, its extraordinary carved faces looking out across encroaching jungle and its proliferation of carvings, bas reliefs and inscriptions, have made it the quintessential icon of Cambodia -- it appears on the country's flag -- and a tourist destination for more than half a million foreign visitors each year. Photographer David Stanford, better known for his portraits of East Anglian country churches, has turned his lens to this vast complex and presents its story alongside his evocative photographs.

About the Author

In the 1960s, David Stanford started out studying Painting and History of Art at Walthamstow School of Art alongside such figures as Ian Dury, Vivian Stanshall and Peter Greenaway. On graduation from the Royal College of Art, he established his own photographic studio, photographing a number of famous bands for album sleeves. Over the next 25 years, he shot a wide range of high-profile advertising campaigns and fashion spreads for magazines in London and Paris. He specialized in fashion and beauty, but also managed to cover everything from cars to wars, and even directed a number of TV commercials and film documentaries. He has recently returned to painting, but still travels extensively on his personal, eclectic, photographic adventures. He has enthusiastically embraced digital photography, and very rarely now uses traditional film. He lives in East Sussex.
