Between Fantasy and Reality: Contemporary Photography from Cambodia

Artists Khvay Samnang
Chan Moniroth
Vandy Rattana
Lim Sokchanlina

Having come of age in a post-Khmer Rouge period of intense modernization, these four Cambodian artists are committed to exploring the tension between existing (often ancient) traditions and those of present-day global trends. Their topics and images provoke new perceptions of Cambodia and complicate ideas of fact and fiction, fantasy and reality—for the photographer and the viewer. 

Curated by Erin Gleeson and Maria Cieszewska-Wong
