2010 marks the 65th anniversary of Japan's surrender, and the end of the constructruction of the Burma-Thailand Railway by Allied prisoners of war and Asian forced laborers. Raoul Kramer chose this moment to step back in the war-time footsteps of his grandfather, a former Allied prisoner of war forced to work on the Railway. To explore what remains from the Railway today, Raoul documented the traces that he found in the landscape of Burma and Thailand.
