Photographers love Cambodia. Whether its the Siem Reap-based black and white photography of John McDermott, who is finally bringing out a book this year on his iconic Angkor photos, or self-published books from the likes of David Seaver and Filippo Minelli, the numbers of photographers locating themselves in Cambodia is growing by the minute. There are now two photographic agencies vying for business, having been set up in the last couple of months. I shouldn't forget my old pal Eric de Vries of course, and countless others. Eric has already self-published three books including his 2006 book, Images of Cambodia. David Seaver's book, Cambodia, Breaking the Bonds of History, is the result of six years documenting the changing face of this country, whilst conceptual-artist Minelli is a world traveller and painter who brought out his Cambodia photo-book last year. Both the latter two books are available through Blurb.com, as are others from lensmen dedicated to bringing you the beauty of Cambodia and beyond. Link: Eric de Vries.
