The May Ebihara Collection: Ethnographic Research in Rural Community, 1959-1995

These photographs by the late cultural anthropologist Dr. May Ebihara depict life in Cambodia in the years between 1959-60, and during the 1990s. The earlier materials represent a particularly valuable resource in that the Khmer Rouge regime (1975-79) purposefully destroyed many other collections of photographs depicting society and culture in Cambodia. The original slides and prints represented in digital form here are available in Northern Illinois University Libraries' Donn V. Hart Southeast Asia Collection.
