The Sa Sa Art Gallery has an interesting exhibition opening this Friday 11 June at 6pm, which will run throughout most of July, if you are into looking at the architectural heritage to be found in Phnom Penh. It is called Old Buildings and will be on show at the gallery's headquarters on Street 360. Photographer Chhin Taingchhea graduated in painting from university four years ago and after studying photography with Stephane Janin, his main subject is architecture and his most prominent work to-date was The Building, which focused on the 468 Municipal Apartments opened in 1963, now known as the White Building. This will be his second major solo exhibition. The Sa Sa Art Gallery opened in 2009, and focuses on emerging Cambodian contemporary artists exhibiting new bodies of work, hosting 5-6 exhibitions each year.
