New Student Photo Series 2011 – Post #12

Incoming MIA student Paul Hersh sent along the following photos for posting.  Enjoy.

“Vietnam – Ha Long Bay” – A lonely fisherman in Ha Long Bay, Vietnam.

“Syria – Aleppo – Umayyad Mosque” – Inside the Umayyad Mosque in Aleppo, Syria.

“Cambodia – Phnom Penh – Tuol Sleng” – Building A of Tuol Sleng, with large cells in which the bodies of the last victims were discovered. The photos on the wall are how the rooms were found, with the mutilated body of a prisoner chained to the bed, killed by his fleeing captors only hours before the prison was captured.  Tuol Sleng, in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, was a former high school which was used as the notorious Security Prison 21 (S-21) by Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge regime from its rise to power in 1975 to its fall in 1979.
