Photo report: Wildlife in the Cambodian minefields
by Shathel Fahs, Technical Field Manager, MAG Cambodia
As a deminer currently based in Cambodia, I do photography in my free time, when my camera plays a big role in helping me to relax after demanding days at work.
As I was seeing lots of wildlife in the minefield and hearing lots of stories from the deminers about what they'd seen, I thought it would be a good idea to start a project taking photos of wildlife and different mines or items from the minefield.
This eagle is pictured in Samlot, a district of Battambang Province in north-western Cambodia.
The above photograph is completely staged: this PMN-2 landmine is free from explosives and the lizard was caught in the minefield.
Here are some more photos I've taken, including this one of a tarantula in the deminers' rest area...
