The Book in Pictures

After “Beyond the Killing Fields” book was completed and Sydney was waiting to see the finished manuscript, he began to explore boxes of photographs and papers collected following his return from Cambodia in 1975. Some of the photos had been used as source material for his article “The Death and Life of Dith Pran,” which appeared in the New York Times Magazine, while others were referenced during the making of the film “The Killing Fields.” In his archive, he discovered many forgotten pictures taken of specific places and events described in the book. Those have been gathered by chapter and appear only on this website. References to events in the book, by page number, can be found in the captions. Some additional photographs (not from the Schanberg archive) and videos also appear on the photo pages.
