Between 1975-1979, 1.7 million Cambodians—a third of the country’s population— perished during the Killing Fields, one of the most horrific state-sponsored genocides of the twentieth century. In the years since, over 150,000 Cambodians displaced in refugee camps along the Thai-Cambodian border resettled in the United States.
My immediate family is among the survivors.
Pete Pin, a Magnum Foundation Fellow, has been photographing Cambodian communities across the United States. He is now raising funds to continue this work. Support his Kickstarter project here, and come out to see Pete speak at the Half King on Sept. 18.
