More books on Cambodia

Dutch photographer and artist Eric de Vries loves Asia and you can see that love in his photographic books, one of which, Images of Cambodia was published by Cleartrails last year. The 200-page book has de Vries' black & white and colour photos taken between 2000-2005 and includes the complete series from his 2005 exhibitions in Phnom Penh and the Netherlands. He's also published two other books, this year, A Blues For Buddha and Hanoi Black and White. You can order his books via his website.

Bun Yom is currently completing his second book covering his life in America after fleeing the Khmer Rouge and the Cambodian genocide. His first book, Bun's Story - Tomorrow I'm Dead, tells the story of the Khmer Rouge takeover and how it affected the fifteen year old Bun from Pailin, who later became a freedom fighter before his flight to the States via the Philippines. Today he lives in Washington State and runs his own restaurant. Bun's website has more details of his first book.
