Starting in 2009, in conjunction with the Institut français du Cambodge, Philong Sovan and Tang Chhin Sothy have been working with young aspiring photographers. Beyond technical advice, this weekly course starts with project design, development and management and helps each student to figure out his or her way of expression. These are the students who provide the Cambodian first exhibits of the program. Others are present in group exhibitions along with new works by their two teachers. The whole, in its diversity, shows to what extent a youthful form of Cambodian photography is coming on its own, being built and maturing, and is taking a clean sweep of all contemporary approaches to the medium. Alternating between humor and seriousness, in color as well as in B&W, in image staging as in making documentaries, in fantasy as in memory.
