About the photo

The crowning glory of the abandoned buildings on Bokor Mountain has to be this former luxury French colonial retreat constructed in the early 1920’s. Not surprisingly, movies have been filmed here namely the very aptly one called ‘City of Ghosts’ made in 2002. Gifted with beautiful light softened by the dense fog outside, we photographed these stairwells. They would have seen much history, from extremes of colonial decadence to a civil war.
