As a corollary to the Angkor Photo Festival, former Anjali House kid Try Sophal, now 25,  is also holding her second solo exhibition at Raffles Grand Hotel D’Angkor. The exhibition is on Siem Reap, her home for the last five years.

Sophal told 7Days, “My lovely Siem Reap exhibition includes photos of ancient masterpieces such as Ta Prom, and Bayon temples, and some photos are of my house.”

Sophal said Siem Reap makes her feel nice and peaceful, a serenity that is reflected in her photography.

Sophal was born in 1988 in Takeo Province. In 2008, she was accepted into the Anjali House program and, after a number of years of interrupted schooling, received a scholarship to attend public school.

In June 2010 she won the first place student prize at the inaugural You Khim Memorial Women’s Art Prize, for her photograph, The Life of an Apsara.

Later in 2010, her first solo exhibition entitled My Life and Dreams was held during the Angkor Photo Festival  at the Angkor Photo Gallery in Siem Reap.

Her photos are also featured in a Halo Trust landmines exhibit in this year’s photo festival.
