The finance industry appears to be fertile ground for creativity and entrepreneurship; our resident well –being expert and founder of the Healing Garden, Sheila Hicks Balgobin whose early career was spent amongst the cut and thrust of Wall Street, is a good example. Andy Booth, founder of not –for –profit ABOUTAsia Travels, is also a former ‘City boy’. Andy has produced a new guidebook dedicated to the ancient temples of Angkor Wat in Cambodia, The Angkor Guidebook is a visual feast; Andy has brought the history of the temples to life via stunning visual reconstructions of the temples as they were in their glorious heyday.
The Angkor Guidebook also contains previously unpublished images of the temples during the early 20th Century. The un-seen photographs are from the École Française d’extreme-Orient, a French institute which has been tasked with being the guardian of the temples for the past 120 years; they have painstakenly reconstructed Angkors’ temples since 1898.
