Cambodia photos win global press competition

Photographer Nigel Dickinson has been awarded first prize in the features category of the prestigious Press Photographer’s Year 2008 competition for a series of pictures shot last year in Cambodia.

Dickinson, whose portfolio spans much of the globe, has worked extensively in South East Asia, documenting environmental and rights issues.

His prize-winning work in Cambodia featured Stung Meanchey dump and Cambodia’s last passenger train route from Phnom Penh to Battambang.

 

“I am very happy and honored to receive this award. It’s humbling to be awarded a prize by one’s peers, fellow photographers and experienced photojournalists,” Dickinson told the Post by email on June 25.

“As a human being and as a journalist, I cannot help but become concerned with what I see and become involved with people and issues,” he added.

“Especially when I witness such a strong spirit, and receive such warmth and hospitality from the Khmer people, who live with corruption, the legacy of the Khmer Rouge, often in poverty and surviving against the odds.

Dickinson’s work can be viewed on his website www.nigeldickinson.com.
