Laurie Saget

NEW YORK CITY, United States

Currently, Laurie Saget is living in NYC after 1.5 years of extensive traveling to various countries. In April 2009 she visited the Tuol Svay Prey High School, which had been converted into a prison during the Pol Pot Regime from 1975 to 1979. The prison became known as S.21 (Security Office in Phnom Penh, Cambodia). Her photos show images of the gallows used for water torture, prison cells and rooms that still, to this day, contain the tools used to torture and execute engineers, teachers, students, ministers and thousands of other innocent Cambodians then considered enemies of the regime and its politics.

Laurie has continued to create short films that feature the beauty, culture, hopes and ideals of these people. They are now united in their efforts to heal from the devastation of the genocide.
