Atlanta: Nexus Press, 1987. Unpaged [60 pp.]. Illus. with b/w photos and color images. Folio. Photo-pictorial paper-covered boards. First edition. Shot on several trips to Southeast Asia during the 1980's, Burke's photos reveal much of the aftermath of the Khmer Rouge's effects on Cambodia. "Each day, I was thinking about practicality, is my pass in order, how do I get there, who do I meet that will get me through. The philosophical thoughts came later. When I realized that I had access to the camps and could see the Khmer Rouge, it was like being able to see the Devil. It seemed to be an incredible opportunity." Color reproductions of various local objects and selections from Burke's diary enhance this very influential work. "Although the pictures have a nineteenth-century feel, the book is also a diary that records a twentieth-century experience. Burke not only uses his photographs, but also employs documents- reproductions of ephemera like money and bus tickets- and collages them with handwritten captions. The result is a kaleidoscopic impression of his journeys, taking the book out of the documentary realm and into that of the personal road trip. However, this particular sojourn does not merely connate the search for self that occupies so much of late twentieth-century American photography. It also represents a moving attempt to come to terms with some of the events that haunted his generation" (Parr/Badger, The Photobook). A fine copy. Parr & Badger: 2, pp. 40-41. Roth 101: pp. 258-250.
