Between the years 1975 and 1979, 1.7 million Cambodians perished during a period called the Killing Fields — one of the largest state-sponsored genocides of the twentieth century. Since then, upwards of 150,000 former refugees have resettled in the United States, members of Peter Pin’s immediate family among them. Now, what started two years ago as a personal portraiture project to capture an image of his grandmother, has evolved into a far reaching photographic exploration of the Cambodian diaspora in the Northeastern United States. But he’s working against the clock; many of the era’s remaining survivor’s are passing away before they have the chance to contribute to their shared historical legacy. His work is also our Project of the Day.
