TitleThe meaning then and the meaning now
Description" I saw my neighbour was making a photograph of the children in the village, they called me to join. I was told to dress accordingly so I borrowed some clothes. There were a lot of Khmer Rouge around but they where not strict, however they did ask the villagers to dress the same. The black clothing looked powerful, those who wore black were part of group, part of the KR. The poor were asked first and it give us power. I loved the black clothing then but now I hate it as it reminds me of a hard life of slavery and poverty.. When the Khmer rouge took power they killed the neighbour who made the photograph of us because of his education."
