    Dear Vanny,

    thank you for your mail.
    All the images on this page were taken by Aroon Thaewchatturat working for FFI (Flora and Fauna International) in order to promote Bunong culture and alert the Cambodian government to their plight. Aroon asked for permission to shoot these pictures from every individual in the images and made it clear that the images would be used in the book – The Bunong – The Caretakers of Cambodia´s Sacred Forest. Hence your mother was asked, as were any relatives who might have been present. The images are not used for commercial purposes but to highlight the challenges faced by the Bunong community. Of course, if you feel that this is unfair, do let me know which image your mother is pictured in and I will take it off the website. I understand the your concern, though the pictures are used to promote Bunong culture and rights.

    Best,

    Tom
