Asia Pacific - Angkor Photo Festival


Congratulations to the 10th edition of the Angkor Photo Festival, Cambodia, our partners in the Asia Pacific Photoforum. Celebrations open on 29th November until 6th December. This anniversary year, Angkor is hosting the annual meeting of the Directors of the participating Festivals in the Asia Pacific Photoforum. The APP annual meetings have been held in Ballarat 2011, in Auckland 2012, in Pingyao 2013 and in Angkor 2014 this is the 4th annual meeting of the APP.

The Auckland Festival of Photography will be presenting projections by NZ photographers Solomon Mortimer and Qiane Matata-Sipu as part of Angkor’s evening programme of international work. See full programme here.

This is the 3rd time the Auckland Festival of Photography has collaborated with the programme in Angkor Photo Festival. In 2011 as part of our Festival here, we showed Bangkok Unrest and Haiti Aftermath projection’s curated by Angkor’s curator Francoise Callier and in 2012 we featured Italian Enrico Dagnino’s work on migrants forced to return to Libya by Italian coastguards patrolling Lampedusa’s waters. Also in 2012 Angkor presented the Auckland Annual Fine Arts Commission by James K Lowe.
