Going Around Cambodia
Temples, Markets And Rain – My Trip Around Cambodia
Travelling and shooting for a month in humid climate during the rainy season was
a serious challenge. My aim was to traverse Phnom Penh, Mekong and Siem-Reap
before heading South to Kampot and Kep.
Shooting Siem-Reap was a case of choosing more exotic temple and trying to keep
away from the tourists. At Phom Penh I visited the main spots and few local
charms recommended by friends and locals. It was one the easiest city to shoot.
The Mekong was too flat and wide so it was a nightmare to get any real sense of
size. I’d pretty much crossed it off and left it for next time.
Kampot and Kep were full of rusted old colonial bridges, all kinds of wildlife,
mountains and beaches. It was an amazing place not overcrowded with tourists.

1. North Sentinel Island
North Sentinel Island is located near the Andaman and Nicobar islands and is
home to the Sentinelese tribe who do not welcome any contact from the outside
world. Even after the 2004 tsunami when rescuers tried to find out if the tribes
had survived, their relief parcels were reciprocated with spears and arrows.
Anthropologists have given up studying about the tribesmen due to their
potential wrath of killing outsiders on sight. The only images that exist of
these people are from satellite photos and spy cameras.
