Phnom Penh street portraits


Sometimes it’s best to keep things simple.  There’s so much happening on the streets in Phnom Penh, especially compared to the much quieter towns that I’d been visiting previously, that it can be hard to take it all in.  After a few days in the city, I stopped trying to take the definitive Phnom Penh photograph, and instead concentrated on looking for interesting faces in nice light.  So I spent my last afternoon there wandering the streets and alleys around O Russei market, taking some simple portrait pictures with my (to give it its full name) sadly neglected 85mm lens.

    They’re more than nice – they’re portraits of people with interesting faces, their lives and personalities written on their faces. Terrific 🙂

    These are beautiful. So much life in each face. I think Cambodians are some of the nicest people in the world, and that is reflected in their faces.

    Your portraits make me want to know more about the people, to hear their stories. Beautiful.
