Travel Photographs | Battambang, Cambodia

I took a trip in early June to photograph a travel story in Battambang, Cambodia. Perhaps one of Southeast Asia’s quintessential cliches of a sleepy riverside town. Monks walking down dirt paths, a central market with food stalls and vegetable vendors, lots of afternoon naps, colonial architecture, naked dirty babies, a bit of an arts scene, nearby temples, and the like. There’s even a cave that bats fly out of at night, and a “bamboo” railway that’s not much more than a greedy tourist trap. Which is to say, it’s a great place for a long lazy weekend. I’m a fan. Except for the railway bit. That’s a genuine ripoff. Here are a few photographs from the trip. Enjoy.

  4. Awesome set on Battambang. You’ve covered it nicely. I’m a sucker for the train (beyond the tourist strip) but I totally agree with your view on it!

  5. Indeed a beautiful place. Can’t wait to go here with my wife.

  6. These are beautiful. The colors are velvety–I wish I knew how to do this in Southeast Asia where there is such blinding light. Thank you for posting these!
