In 2009, I visited Cambodia for the first time to carry out research for my docudrama Fire, Fire, Desire. Between 2010 and 2016 I then spent one month each year filming in Southeast Asia. But I have never managed to switch between film and photo camera. It wasn't until 2017 and 2018, when I stopped working in film to set up a short-wave radio station, that I took my photo camera with me.
The following pictures were taken in my spare time in Phnom Penh. The aim was to capture the feeling I felt during my film work years later.
I was only partially successful in doing that. Like no other Southeast Asian city, Phnom Penh changes with breathtaking speed.
