For the past six months Michael Klinkhamer – a Dutch photojournalist with more than 25 years experience in the field – has taken amateur snappers on daily photo tours around Phnom Penh and its surroundings, giving tips on how to take better pictures.
Not once, he claims, has he come back from the tours without a photo he loved.
“It’s often said among photographers that you can’t go wrong in Cambodia,” he says. “And that has to do with the beauty of Cambodia and the excitement and diversity of Phnom Penh.”
Klinkhamer’s latest exhibition, opening tonight at the FCC, offers about 35 shots capturing some of the “magical moments and surprises” he has encountered during the tours. Will Jackson had a chat with him about some of his favourites.
Can’t Go Wrong Here runs until the end of March at the FCC, 363 Sisowath Quay.
