It was a special night at the 2nd evening of the 9th Edition Angkor Photo Festival, featuring the 1st Guest Curator slideshow at FCC, Exhibition opening at McDermott Gallery, and ending at the Loft with “Blow Up Angkor”.
Beginning with a lovely opening at the McDermott Gallery, viewers and photographers alike arrived for the anticipated Exhibitions of Herbie Yamaguchi | Japan “HATACHI NO SHOKEI” and Martin Usborne | UK “MUTE: THE SILENCE OF DOGS IN CARS”. The energy in the gallery was uplifting as people floated around viewing the work while socializing with colleagues and friends. John and Robina of McDermott Gallery have outdone themselves once again, thank you!
Many thanks to Takeki Sugiyama, a member of the 2013 Committee for the Angkor Photo Festival, and founder of Tanto Tempo Gallery in Kobe, Japan, for your efforts in making the Herbie Yamaguchi’s exhibition possible!
Ending the evening with a fabulous projection show “BLOW UP ANGKOR” – Blindboys.org. Thank you to all that attended day 2 of the 9th Edition.
Next up we moved over to FCC Angkor for the 2nd night of slideshows graciously presented by Guest Curator Shahidul Alam,Director of Chobi Mela Photography Festival in Dhaka, and Founder of Drik Picture Agency. It was a pleasant evening of “Taking Humor Seriously“ where Mr Alam freely showcased the work of various photographers expressing humor satire and irony where he states “Humour, satire and irony are wonderful instruments to not only express mirth, but also to critique, dissect and tease out subtleties of human emotion.” We are grateful to Shahidul for his beneficial contribution and kind presence at this years event!
