Malaysian-born photographer Jenny Ng talks about her upcoming first exhibition of works at The 240 Gallery.

How did you get into photography?

I bought my first camera in 2003, but I was working as an accountant until 2009, so it’s only been in the last few years that it has become serious.

What made you switch from accountancy to photography?

Managing a team of 60 people is very tiring work. I was stressed and exhausted and decided I needed to take time off. While I was resting, I began to realise that my passion, taking photographs, could be my work too.

The Vultures: US artist Kathleen Griffin exhibits at Meta House

Between life and death there is a space, dividing the here and the next. In this margin is the habitat of the vulture, mourning the transition and holding the wake. He consumes both pain and disease, tearing the wound from the body. Taking in everything, braiding it into his own flesh, his own DNA. He gathers the last flavors of life, the first taste of death in his mouth. Carrying the creature across the space in his body, keeping it company as it faces the darkness.

Kathleen Griffin’s new series of drawings, “The Vultures”, is based on her time in Cambodia with scientist Yula Kapetanakos, whose research focuses on the conservation of Asian vultures.

Two young Cambodian artists make the most of their Tokyo Wonder Site residency

Tokyo's vast facade of concrete and steel is a long way from the dusty, tree-lined streets of Phnom Penh. The distance is obvious to anyone who has experienced both cities, but it seems particularly clear to two young Cambodian artists who are now participating in an artist-in-residence program at Tokyo Wonder Site (TWS) in Aoyama.

Although not one to wax about the significance and meaning behind her works, Sokuntevy Ouer is anything but a shrinking violet. A contemporary Cambodian soul balancing on the fence between history and family, heavy with the burden of responsibility, while on the other side a future packed with independence, promise and opportunity.

History has many marvels up its sleeve. These marvels consist of traditions, monuments, culture and customs. Myanmar people too have been bestowed with numerous customs and traditions by their ancestors. Puppet art is one such tradition which was very famous in 17th and 18th century. During that time, puppets were not only used for entertainment purposes but also as a communication medium for the rural population. Puppeteers were nothing short of national heroes serving a public cause.

More Siem Reap graffiti art

Almost 2 years ago I wrote about graffiti art appearing in Siem Reap. This was the first that I noticed. Since then, they have been popping up everywhere. I like the colours and think they brighten up the place. I have been trying to find them all. This one is on Sivatha, near the florist (there is only one).
