Dear Cambodia




I do photography whenever I have a chance. This one I took just a few days ago. These are skyscrapers along Monivong Boulavard, but I'm only interested in the statue of Genesh, a god of Wisdom and Knowledge. I like it when they build new statues from sandstone like this one. If you come to Cambodia, you can see there's a quite number of statues of Aryan Gods in Phnom Penh. That's because we used to be a Hindu state and our half-ancestors were originated from somewhere in India.

It's quite recent that I have made a point to take pictures of anything about Cambodia. I guess I have been trying to show the world about what my country looks like through my eyes. I don't know how many of people out there notice my cheesy work, but I don't mind.

And I know I will never do it justice to present Cambodia, but I have tried with everything I can. I make comics in a hope that it will draw attention from people who don't know about Cambodian life. I take photos with snippets of my thoughts of my country. I also write story, so that someday people can read it and enjoy the rich culture we have. Although, there's a long long way to go, but I'm doing what I love. This quote said it best, "We all can't do great things, but we can do small things in a great way."
