To bring back the glory of Cambodia’s traditional architectural designs, a young heritage conservationist is tirelessly travelling to different parts of the country to conduct research and capture the beauty of old buildings.
Srin Sokmean, a native of Phnom Penh capital spends his time, effort and resources to document the country’s heritage. And now, he is showing the fruits of his labour through his exhibition, ‘Underrated Heritage Building’.
The exhibition will feature 50 photos of different buildings taken from one city and 14 provinces – Phnom Penh, Kandal, Kampong Cham, Kampong Chhnang, Prey Veng, Battambang, Pursat, Bantay Meanchey, Pailin, Kampong Thom, Sihanoukville, Kampot, Kep, Kratie, and Tbong Khmum.
The three-day ‘Underrated Heritage Building’ exhibit will be held in August at the Kbach Gallery in Factory Phnom Penh. Aside from the photo exhibit, there will also be various art performances to support Sokmean’s main goal: to preserve and re-introduce Cambodia’s culture to its very own people.
