The Mirage Is Growing…

The mirage is growing… I continue to follow the development of Koh Pich (Diamond Island). I started this in 2009 (see HERE), basically photographing the changing landscape of the island where many families who were providing vegetables to the people in Phnom Penh were evicted from.

The whole place looks a bit like a real-life Sim-city game, referring to classical French architecture: put a Versailles inspired building here, drop an empty city hall there, shamelessly copy Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands, add a park with sculptures here or there, preferably representing exotic animals. It’ll keep the people happy…
