ANGKOR photo fest nurtures talent

FINAL preparations for The Fourth Angkor Photography Festival, to be held in Siem Reap from November 23 to 28, are now in place.

While

new innovations are planned for this year, as well as a more global

outlook, essential components will be retained, including a series of

free workshops for aspiring photographers, who will this year be taught

clicks of the craft by renowned photographers Roland Neveu, Patrick de

Noirmont, Antoine d'Agata and Suthep Kritsanavarin.

They have

volunteered to tutor 30 young photographers selected from throughout

Asia who work in photojournalism and documentar photography. One of the

free workshops, led by Laurent Zylberman and Vincent Soyez, will also

select six to eight young photographers to specialise in commercial

photography.

Last year, the Paris Match Award for the best reportage

produced during the workshop at the festival was given to Indian

photojournalist Selva Prakash for a powerful photo essay about Aids

patients and their families in Siem Reap.

Photography workshops for

the children from the Anjali centre will also be held, and festival-end

will see a fundraising auction for the Anjali children,  with prints

donated by world-famous photographers.
