Workers in Phnom Penh

Written by on October 25, 2012 in Blog, Photo Blog with 4 Comments

I’ve been shooting video around Phnom Penh the past two days for a project. I’ve hardly touched my camera for months, or that’s how it feels. No regrets about that, because I needed time for other things. I was there to shoot video, but it reminded me of my long held desire to spend time meeting and photographing workers in this city.  I think their stories are far more interesting than, well, pictures of Lindsey Lohan, although someone would probably pay me for pictures of Lindsey Lohan.

    I’m glad you picked the camera back up !!
    1. “Cambodia Beer” Welcome to the West!!
    2. I see concrete and reinforcing rod everywhere– no bamboo. Welcome to the West!!
    3. The high-rise buildings only go 4-5 stories. Why is that??

    The pictures tell so much more than words do. I think that history is best told in pictures than interpreting words.

    good job!! Bill

    Thanks for your comment. I will try and post a skyline photo to show the high rises in process. Yes, the photos can tell the story. Now that you mention it, I do like the overall effect of the last one even more.
