Phnom Penh Tries Green (3)…

This is the start of a new series, initiated here and continued here… December is a good month for this: crisp light for the next weeks…

Phnom Penh is a crowded city. A real organic city: growing, evolving, adapting spontaneously with its inhabitants. Unlike many developed countries, and still for now, most Cambodians have their roots in a rural environment, subject to the laws of mother nature. The migrants coming to the capital adapt quickly to the concrete and disorder, leaving behind all nostalgia. It is the older city dwellers, living in the centre of town, who try to cling to some green. These are photographs of vegetation, desperately resisting in the bustling streets of central Phnom Penh.

Today features street 13…
