150 years of photos taken in Cambodia

150 years of photos taken in Cambodia

Tangram Garden is hosting a special edition of Snap! 150 Years of Photography in Cambodia this evening.

Inspired by the work of photographers John Thomson and Emille Giselle, who took some of the first images of Angkor Wat and the Cambodian royal family, the presentation introduces archival photographs and film clips from the century and a half since as a way of exploring Cambodia’s history through a slightly different lens.

“We wanted to show Cambodia not just through an historical aspect, but through a specific medium instead,” said Nicholas Coffill, the event organiser and project director for Bambu Stage, a theatre and storytelling company that is now based in Tangram Garden.

Tickets for the presentation are $25, and include a welcome drink and banquet dinner. Doors open at 6:45pm, for 7pm. For reservations contact Tangram Garden.
