Photographer's Note

Cambodia is one of the poorest countries in the world. Nevertheless the country has a rich and prominent rural architecture. All over the country one can find very simple buildings of the same type. They are highly optimised for a hot tropical climate. The floor has small gaps where air can enter and exit through the roof. If the ventilation of such a house functions well, the temperature inside the house is more or less the same as outside. But due to electric light and television mosquitos are attracted when it is dark.
