This story focus on the urban space of Phnom Penh’s corners. Photographer Prum Ero captures the varied architecture and everyday life at the rounded and angular corner buildings from the perspective of the pedestrian. His selection of images is mapped around five of the capital’s main markets including Psa Kandal, Psa Chas, Psa Olympic, Psa Orussey, and Psa Thmei, reveals a wide range of adaptations to original structures built between the 1910s-1980s while capturing many aspects of city-life today. Driven by an impulse to record for future generations’ reference, Prum’s titles combine the directional and street indications with the date of documentation.
