Thomas Ashe has been taking photographs ever since acquiring his first 35mm Canon SLR camera while in high school in New York City in 1968. His love for the art of photography and his affection and appreciation for his subjects is apparent in his finished work. He now lives in Placitas, New Mexico and shows his work at the Range restaurant in Bernalillo, NM. His Cambodia photos were taken in December 2006 in Siem Reap and Phnom Penh. He describes his trip to Cambodia as "life altering." The people he met there were friendly and optimistic and, Tom says, could not have been more accommodating and lovely. His other projects include a photographic study over many years documenting the remnants of early auto travel in the American west. The study features the famed "mother road," Route 66, as it winds through New Mexico, Arizona and California.
