About Me

Sok Sobi. I enjoy taking pictures of people and places, particular interest in Landscape, People and Travel photography. Pictures and stories that bring Social Awareness and the potential for long term social change or policy are important to me. I use Canon Digital Cameras (EOS 1Ds,1D Mk1,2,4 plus Powershot G11) with a selection of Canon lenses, the 24-105 IS f4L being my favourite at present. I use Lightroom & Photoshop Elements to edit my work. Canon equipment and lenses give me just what I need, reliability and high IQ. I am now living and working in Cambodia, South East Asia, using Phnom Penh as a base to explore the region. I publish stories that are important to me on my blog but always try to give a balanced picture.

Oppression comes in many forms. Denial of Freedom of expression is probably the most lacking throughout Asia. People are prevented from demonstrating, even though that right is enshrined within law, they are publicly beaten and intimidated. TV is controlled by the state and does not allow anything that may be critical of Government. Freedom of the Press is constrained.

Keeping people in poverty, without hope, health care and government services is just another form of oppression.
