anonymous, tuol seng

I drew and then posted the page that this wee girl appeared on in my notebook to the blog a couple of weeks ago. When I opened the page of the magazine on which the book she is featured in was advertized her image immediately stood out. She looks very self-possessed, almost defiant - I immediately reached for my pen. Even though I knew the book was about photography and political violence, I imagined that she was a refugee and wondered what she might be doing now. To my gut-sickened horror, I found out this past week that her fate was much more immediate and awful.
