Inside Changi and the Thai-Burma Railway.

In THE CHANGI CAMERA, acclaimed author Tim Bowden presents a unique record of one Australian soldier's experience of the fall of Singapore, captivity in Changi and enduring the hell of the Thai-Burma Railway. George Aspinall was a keen photographer and, even in the very worst of conditions, he managed to take photos, process them and so preserve for later generations the reality of incarceration.

Along with George's own memories of those years, Tim Bowden has written a gripping and authoritative overview of what happened in Changi and on the Railway.

This powerful narrative and unique collection of almost one hundred photographs combine to give us a raw and graphic account of just what George and thousands of his fellow Australians endured.

    Comments about The Changi Camera:

    Informative book on Changi. The overview & personal life of a P.O.W. reveals events as seen by most prisoners.
    It should be in Senior School's libraries.

    A beautiful book - all the more remarkable because of the stinging tragedy that lies beneath the surface of the sepia photos. - Sydney Telegraph
