A few photos from a recent street photography tour of Phnom Penh lead by Jeff, (Jean Francois) Perigois. Jeff is a long term resident of Cambodia’s capital so can lead you down a few back alleys you’d certainly never find – or dare to go down – yourselves and his great rapport with locals provides obvious advantages for street, market…

Nathan’s got a busy month coming up, combining an Images of Indochina tour and a Cambodia photo trip with a truly international group comprising of US, Canadian, South African, British and Australian…

Prek Toal, a large village – or small town – situated at the point where the Sangker River meets the Tonle Sap Lake is entirely constructed on rafts, floating on the water. Schools, shops, karaoke…
