Workshop, Phnom Penh, Cambodia, 1987

It seems that any spare part or mechanical device could be found in this Cambodian workshop. Pulleys, pipes, levers, nuts, bolts and canisters of all shapes and sizes appear to be for sale. A shop such as this would be an anathema in the West, where the idea of repairing a broken object is commonly dismissed in favour of buying a new one.
