The temples of Cambodia are among the most complex and imposing architectural creations in the world. This book invites the reader to experience those extraordinary sites through remarkable photographs and a text by a leading Khmer cultural historian. From modest brick structures in the seventh and eighth centuries, the temples became increasingly ambitious, setting the stage for the apogee of the Khmer empire and with it, the supreme architectural creation of Cambodia, Angkor Wat. Barry Brukoff’s splendid photographs not only record temples that have been destroyed but also offer a uniquely intimate insight into the Cambodian idiom, and with Helen Ibbitson Jessup’s expert text, allow readers to penetrate to the heart of the temples’ mystery.

Praise for Temples of Cambodia:
"Part of what makes Temples of Cambodia: The Heart of Angkor so appealing is its photographer's long-term vision and commitment." --The New York Times

'Temples of Cambodia: The Heart of Angkor' is a magnificent journey through the remnants of the least-known of the great world civilizations. . . .Though they take ruins as their subject, Mr. Brukoff's images capture the most timeless elements of Khmer ingenuity. Choosing a perspective above that makes the colonnades of Bayon, a Angkor temple, seem endless, he shows the plan behind the beauty." --The Wall Street Journal
