150 years ago, in 1866, the Scottish photographer John Thomson and the Frenchman Emille Giselle took the first images of Angkor Wat and of the royal family in the palace in Phnom Penh.


Using that as an impetus, we spent months sifting through photographic libraries to assemble a montage of images and short archival film clips that trace Cambodia’s recent history.


Using themes of Angkor temples, entertainment and politics and war, the forty minute show has unearthed rare and powerful images, mashing the archival with the popular.


Both of these shows are part of the COCKTAILS WITH CONNECTED PEOPLE series,
