Have you used Phnom Penh city bus?

bus-phnom-penh
Ambassador Bill Longhurst: “it’s great to travel with so many Cambodian fellow passengers on the public bus. The route is convenient and the ticket price very reasonable. I encourage everyone to use public buses in Phnom Penh as this is vital to help reduce the worsening traffic congestion and the high number of road accidents. When I am living and working in London, I use our efficient bus system every day. Without the bus, and the huge numbers it transports, the city would grind to a halt. So I hope to see ‪#‎Cambodia‬’s city bus network grow and expand in the near future and that we will see the effects of it on easing the traffic.”

UNITY: An exhibition of the intimate portrayal of a country coming together to grieve

At the end of this month, JavaArts will present the celebrated work of Kim Hak, Unity, never before exhibited publicly. Unity is the intimate and emotional portrayal of a country mourning the death of its former King Sihanouk. Bathed in warm tones of candlelight, the images capture moments of deeply felt grief and human tenderness that emerges in times of tragedy.

When he first learned of the King Father’s death, Hak joined the thousands gathered at the palace to mourn him. He says “It was a difficult moment. I could not stop my tears, which blurred my vision as I was trying to take photographs. A friend of mine who happened to be near me said, ‘Hak, put down your camera.’ But I could not stop; I kept shooting without really thinking about the images I was recording.”

King Sihanouk was a controversial figure who was well loved and criticized. He was admired for his political agility and for negotiating Cambodia’s independence in the mid-20th century. But in Unity, Hak documented a spiritual moment that transcended politics, bringing the country together in shared loss.

The exhibition coincides with the anniversary of the funeral and cremation ceremony (February 4th). It features a selection of prints, video and the book by the same name. Christian Caujolle, a well-known curator, says this about Hak in the introduction of the book: “Of this unity a photographer bears witness, he, himself, being part of this intertwining of a people. He is not, during this time of grief, ever an outsider: The mourning is his mourning; he is only one among the millions who gathered in front of the Royal Palace or at the site of the cremation ceremony. And his photographs are akin to others’ offerings, his actions both similar to and different from theirs.”

As an off-festival event for the 7th edition of Photo Phnom Penh, Christian, the festival director, will make introductory remarks together with Hak on the opening night.
