"In 1982, years after Viet Nam, I decided to give myself my own Southeast Asia experience. I wanted to make pictures in a place where I didn't know the rules, where I'd be off balance. Friends who had been there recommended Thailand; nice people, easy transportation, good food. Another friend told me that as long as I was going to Thailand I should go see the refugees coming out of Cambodia. He set me up with The International Rescue Committee, which was working at the Thai-Cambodian border". Published in 1987, "I Want to Take Picture" features black and white images which Burke shot during several trips through Southeast Asia in the early eighties, particularly focusing on the after-effects of the Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia.
