PhotoPhnomPenh 2011 –Hong Menea


For his first exhibition, this young photographer, who developed his project during the workshop given by Sovan Philong in Studio Image of the French Institute, before resuming his job on the staff of the Phnom Penh Post. He offers an amused and amusing portrait of Phnom Penh. From a perch on high, he concentrates on the unbelievable loads being transported in the streets of the city. They seem to defy small motors, safety and reason itself. A motorbike thus might carry four beds or four policemen (without helmets…) or pull a tow truck loaded with so many blue pipes that they become a magnificent sculpture, or transport such a mass of passengers that we could expect them to be tossed off as they telephone. Using subtle colors and restoring movement through speed effect photo background, he isolates and crystallizes, with humor, scenes that we often pass by but never really see.

Born in 1990 in Cambodia. Lives and works in Cambodia. Student in high-school and student of Studio Image, he attended a photography training of 6 months at the Phnom Penh Post. He is, since September 2011, part of the Phnom Penh Post team.
