Children of Cambodia - Unguarded Moments

Each photo captures an unguarded moment. The first one a private moment of weariness  and the second an unreserved smile.  For children in Cambodia, these emotions are ever present in their eyes.  Their success selling souvenirs each day effects that night's dinner.  You can see the urgency in their eyes as they go from tourist to tourist and the weight on their shoulders.  However, in moments where no one is looking the immature child within bubbles through and lips curve and teeth flash.  Though only fleeting these moments reveal a self that is free of the  burdens of reality.

Kids in Cambodia - Long Day
