The major photography rendez-vous of South-East Asia celebrates its 10th edition this year!! 10 years, 10 editions: the kick off will take place, once again, at the French Institute of Cambodia, the main partner of the festival since its creation in 2008.
True to the orientations that were taken then, Photo Phnom Penh remains an important moment of exchange between Asian and European photographers from around the world. It aimed at being, from the beginning, a platform to allow the creation of a “school” of Cambodian photographers. Today, three generations are celebrated in this edition, including on the wall of the Embassy of France – symbolic place of the festival – the exhibition of the 10 most important contemporary Cambodian photographers.
The tenth edition celebrates a new partnership with The Delegation of the European Union to Cambodia: its walls will welcome 10 European photographers who have already participated in previous editions of Photo Phnom Penh, all of whom will propose a photo focused on climate change and the challenges the citizens of the world are facing with so many major disruptions in our environment.
In addition to the opening ceremony of the indoor and outdoor exhibitions and the renowned Tuk Tuk Tour, Photo Phnom Penh will offer several evenings events – at the French Institute and Futures Factory – as well as conferences, screenings and portfolio reading.
