Sons of the Mekong. Cambodia.
This was part of a bigger project for New Humanity, an NGO that has been working in Cambodia since 1996 on projects related to poverty, disability and lack of education. These photos are a selection of shots taken during a photo reportage and shown in a travelling photo exhibition that promoted the NGO’s projects. Sales of the photos helped to raise funds and create an awareness of Cambodia’s social problems. New Humanity has also used them in their print and online communications.
Click on each photo and then on the + sign to read the captions, which will give you an understanding of Cambodia’s social context in 2014 when the photos were taken. The titles follow the Cambodian Buddhist tradition of using people’s names with a positive, poetical meaning.
