cambodia in camera lucida
commemorative series


In 2004, Alan Lee had a solo exhibition at the art gallery Chateau d’Arts. The exhibition featured his photographs published in the coffee-table book, The One Word: Hope For Cambodia’s Challenges Today. The book addressed five social issues in the country, namely the broad concerns of homelessness, landmines, AIDS, prostitution, and destitute children. All proceeds from the sale of the book went to a children’s shelter in Phnom Penh. The book sold out, and is no longer in print. Ten years later, this series, titled “Cambodia In Camera Lucida”, commemorates and celebrates Lee’s photographic work on the country. These photographs represent a unique record of its people and culture, taken of a Cambodia at the turn of the new millennium. 
 
Alan Lee has photographed and written about countries including Thailand, Laos, Malaysia, Indonesia, New Zealand and the Czech Republic. He has contributed articles and photographs to publications including Her World, Readers’ Digest, IS, The Straits Times supplements, Angkor and UNDP Report on Cambodia.
