The longest-running photography event in Southeast Asia, The Angkor Photo Festival & Workshops is a free international platform and educational resource for established and emerging photographers. They are strongly committed to nurturing and promoting young Asian talent, and encouraging the development of photography in the region.
The discovery of both new and classic work are shared through evening projections and exhibitions, and the informal nature of the programs creates a welcoming atmosphere where open exchange thrives. Over the past decade, it has been rewarding for them to play a role in ushering some of the region’s best photographers onto the international stage, creating greater exposure for their work and the issues they cover.
As more festivals emerge in the region, their emphasis on education has become an increasingly critical part of what they do. The annual series of workshops provides the region’s emerging talent with first-hand training and invaluable career advice, addressing the lack of affordable and accessible opportunities for young Asian photographers to take their craft to the next level.
In 2017 I was tasked to design their 13th edition festival catalog. The catalog was a free hand-out that would inform people of the festival's many workshops and events hosted by established talents as well as show photography samples that was submitted by photographers all across the world.
