Redfern on show

Photographer Jerry Redfern will open up two exhibitions of his photographs at the Popil Photo Gallery, located on Street 19 in Phnom Penh next month. I urge you to visit whilst you're in town. The gallery was opened in October 2005 and exhibits local and foreign photographers on a permanent and temporary basis. US-born Jerry, and his wife, writer Karen J Coates form a great team and have collaborated on pretty much anything and everything in Cambodia, the tsunami in Phuket and Khao Lak, human-elephant conflict in Sri Lanka, Hmong loggers in Vietnam, unexploded US bombs in Laos that continue to kill villagers today, and much more. They also joined forces for the book, Cambodia Now: Life in the Wake of War, one of the best books I read last year. However, its Jerry's work that will be on show, with an exhibition opening on 9 February entitled Tuamada - It's normal, which focuses on Cambodian kids at work and he follows that up with a slideshow on 16-18 February, An Eternal Harvest: Unexploded Bombs in Laos.
