Robin Yong is a no-frills photographer who uses natural light to create stunning and captivating images. In his new photography collection, Cambodia: The Legends Live On, he takes readers on a dazzling journey of discovery with the people and lesser-known places in this beautiful land. Through his lens, you are invited to travel through the glistening lotus flower fields, where you will meet local children cooling off in the hot sun. Inspired by the mystical waterfalls of Phnom Kulen, the Khmer boxers, and the Cambodian Circus, where students have transformed their lives through performing art, Yong showcases the unique beauty and power of his subjects. Rather than focus on the ancient temples, the ubiquitous stars of most collections of Cambodian photography, Yong prefers to celebrate the quiet beauty of the country and its people, including the saffron-robed monks at Tonle Sap and the rice fields, or the traditional Apsara dancers. The result is a set of photographs that reflect the splendour of this country that many travelers do not usually see. Cambodia is a dynamic and developing country with a promising future. After seeing these images, those who have been lucky enough to visit Cambodia will be tempted to visit this beautiful country again.
