Description

Ta Prohm is one of the temples that comprise Angkor Wat, a massive religious monument in Cambodia begun in the 1100s and largely abandoned during the 1700s. While some of Angkor has been extensively restored, Ta Prohm has not. Izu uses a historic technique, platinum/palladium, to suggest Western explorer’s discovery of the site and a super large-format camera to immerse the viewer in the image.
