Collectively, the five young men who call themselves Stiev are probably the most prolific artistic group in Cambodia. While many of them have jobs in sectors far removed from art and photography, it is their shared passion for the lens that has kept them together. In this photo shoot at the Mansion in Phnom Penh, the five young men brought their cameras with them and turned them on each, attempting simultaneous exposure from five different angles. The members are (top photo from left to right) Lim Sokchanlina, Kong Vollak, Khvay Samnang, Heng Ravuth and Vuth Lyno. You can see an extensive collection of their work online at www.sasaart.info.
