Participants with their tutor at the Angkor Photo Workshop.
THE Anjali Photo Workshops form the core of the festival, and was one of the pioneer activities of the festival when it launched in 2005.
Anjali House is a non-profit organisation in Siem Reap dedicated to taking kids off the streets by providing them food, education, healthcare and access to the arts.
This special photography workshop for the children is lead by qualified photographers, many from past Angkor workshops.
They give the children point-and-shoot cameras and take them under their wing, using photography as a tool to encourage and nurture creativity as well as foster self-confidence.
The photographs are compiled together for a slideshow to be presented on a special Children’s Day.
Some of the participants have gone on to reap the seeds they have sowed at the workshop. Former student, Try Sophal, now works as a photographer for Halo, a non-profit organisation that is helping to clear landmines in Cambodia.
