we found this organization on our trip to cambodia thru another photographer’s gallery. one nite looking for a place to eat we wandered around town as we do so often in visiting cities and came across this photography gallery next door to the FCC in Siem Reap.
it was John MeDermott’s Gallery full of infrared photography which i love of Angkor Wat. we went in and i bought a small print, something we could carry. while paying for the item i told the salesperson that i was a photographer to which she replied that john liked meeting other photographers and did i have a web site. i gave her my card and off we when to dinner.
arriving back at our hotel, The River Garden, we were informed i had a call and they would call back. yes it was john, he invited us down to the gallery to meet and chat.
mary asked the question about a cambodian charity because as americans we have so much that others don’t have. that brought up Kenro Izu work and about the children’s hospital. so this is how we learned of this group.
here are two events that i am donating prints to.
