    abandoned houses in kep, cambodia.
the seaside resort of kep-sur-mer was founded as a colonial retreat for the french elite in 1908. in the 1960s cambodian high rollers continued the tradition but khmer rouge rule brought evacuation followed by systematic looting first and squatters later. today, scores of kep's luxurious pre-war villas are still blackened shells, relics of a once great civilisation that met a sudden and violent end.
