I had the pleasure of working with and photographing Kenro Izu an internationally acclaimed Japanese photographer & humanitarian known best for his photographs of sacred places. Ten years ago, during a series of trips to photograph the Angkor Wat temple in Cambodia, Kenro was moved by his encounters with children disfigured by landmines and in need of medical care. As a way of returning something to Cambodia, he founded a nonprofit organization, Friends Without A Border, and built the Angkor Hospital for Children in 1999. Since that time, the hospital has treated over 560,000 children.

Kenro and I spent a few days together, and visited several of his favorite temples, so that I could photograph him for an article in the June 2009 issue of Town and Country Magazine. It was a typical, hot day in Siem Reap, so Kenro and I took a short break and enjoyed a cold Angkor beer.
