Photography series made in Cambodia mostly during photo tours and workshops. 20 years of photographing in Cambodia resulted in the overview series ’20 Years Cambodia’. The ‘Khmer Standoff’ series were made during the clash between the Thai and Cambodian army at Preah Vihear temple in 2009. That series were on display at The Chinese House Gallery in Phnom Penh. The book ‘Khmer Land’ was self-published (and still available) in 2015.
