Students of film

SEVEN photographers from the School of Fine Arts are exhibiting 28 pictures at

the Cambodiana, until Feb 25. They are taught by French photographer Thierry

Diwo, under the auspices of Arts Cambodge. France's Ministry of Culture and

Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the town of Montreuil, donate $30,000 a year to

the project.

The second-year students learn photography in conjunction

with painting or sculpture. Last year they studied black and white, and this

year have used colour to great effect in a richly photogenic country where the

light and the contrasts are dramatic.

Sovannara Khem fills his picture

with a foreground of blue-green waterlillies, stretching away towards palm

trees, while in the centre, a boy plunges his fishing basket into the water.

Rural idylls characterise Bun Kong's pictures, who captures images of bright

yellow rice being harvested by a wistful girl in a red krama. Photos are on sale

at $60 each.
