Cambodia: Making Sense of Cambodia

I don’t know where to start. This was my first trip to Cambodia so there’s no way I can claim to understand the country after such a short trip. But Cambodia got to me in a good way. It hit all the right nerves and I want to go back.

From a photography viewpoint I originally thought I had nothing. Nothing at all. But now, ever so slowly, that’s changing. There are some shots I like.

Now I need to make sense of the images I have and decide what I want to do with them. I know I want to show the images to the kids I teach – they need to learn about the wider world and I think photography plays a huge part in that process. I also know I want to make a simple book – just for me so that I have something to show from the trip.

But I also know there are huge holes that need to be filled and the only way to do that is learn more about Cambodia as well as myself and to make another trip in the near future.

Here are a few picks from the first edit I made. More to come later.

  1. Nice pics…especially like the second one. Would love to see your final selection of cambodia pics. These were shot digitally?


    1. Thanks.

      No. All Leica M6 with Kodak Portra 400.


  2. Wow would never have guessed these were Porta…so much saturation! A very unique look.


  3. Love the 3rd and 5th pics.


    1. Thanks. I think they are my favourite too.


  4. Nice work Sean, look forward to seeing the rest as it comes through. Scanning is the bit I hate the most.
