{jathumbnail}

The work of well-known Cambodian expat photographer Eric de Vries is being released in a trilogy of books titled, unsurprisingly, The Works of Eric de Vries.

The first in the trilogy is Street, a 220-page (landscape) book and eBook. It was released on November 12. All pics were taken during his courses, private tours and street photography workshops this year in and around Phnom Penh and Siem Reap.

The photos are black and white except for the complete series titles Darkness of the White Building, Phnom Penh’s notorious and much-publicised project style building complex, which some refer to as a slum, on Sothearos Boulevard.

The second book in the series, titled Series, was released on Sunday  as a 216 page paperback and eBook.

This comprises of 11 of Eric’s photo series including A Painful Death, Hello Darling/Strangelove and Evidence of Absence. Two of the series are shot in  Thailand, the rest in Cambodia.

Last but not least is Ultimate Angkor, with more than 250 photographs of temple sites, from the sunrise at Angkor Wat, all the way to sunset at Phnom Bok. Pics are in colour, black and white and sepia.

The book, billed as “a must for Angkor and photography lovers,” will be released on December 10 as a 260-page paperback and an eBook.

The books are published by Cleartrails Publishing and can be purchased online only through Lulu.com.

Print versions of the books are $60. EBooks are $8.
