Three lives of Boeung Kok

Photo by: Julie Bardeche, Vincent De Wilde d' Estmael, Elinor Fry, De Sheng Lim

From June 19 – July 9

These three photo series focus on three facets of Phnom Penh’s northern lake. This lake is taken as an illustration of the mutation caused by the city’s development and its impact on the community and its dynamics.

Without taking sides, this exhibition invites the public to appreciate the life of Boeung Ek’s inhabitants before and after its filling: from life along the rails to the West of the lake until the street art photos as an attempt to revive the neighbourhood, and children on the shore who, adapting to their new environment, play in the dunes, admiring their elders who use the field to practice motocross.

Four amateur photographers who live or lived in Cambodia give you a rendez-vous in this atmosphere of mutations and invite you to rediscover a neighbourhood both lost and retrieved.

Opening Ceremony: Friday 19 June 2015 at 6:30pm

Free admission. All are welcome.
