the angkor monochromes
work in progress

20 years of photographing the Angkor Temples

Small part of the definite collection of 150 black and white photographs shot mostly during the photo tours and workshops showing the main temples and the remote ones across Cambodia. It started with a visit of some temple highlights of Angkor Thom, Ta Prohm and Angkor Wat back in april 2000 shooting analog.



The 150 monochromes plates showing in this book are my personal choice and most of the spots I photographed are still scheduled in my tours and workshops although some parts of temple sites are under heavy restoration. Angkor Park sees more visitors nowadays then back in april 2000 so to preserve the ancient buildings and details the authorities came with new rules and regulations to protect the sites using fences and ropes. A good example is the very popular Ta Prohm temple just outside Angkor Thom with restricted areas and new build stages for the selfie-taking visitors… Anyways… Here they are, some monochromes of incredible temple overviews and details throughout parts of Cambodia as my personal best.
