NAME: Cambodian Trees
AUTHOR: Clément Briend, a French photographer living in Paris.
DESCRIPTION: The magical side of Cambodia is revealed in this photo series. Clément Briend uses projections to show the imaginary side hidden in everyday reality. Deities appear on the trees of Phnom Penh, sign of the spirituality which is at the core of the Cambodian culture.
AMUSEMENT RATE: The divine figures seem to keep an eye on the human world, watching the every moves of their followers. Briend’s projections makes the frontier between reality and fantasy blurry. He does not use the digital projections as an end but as a way to take the photography a step further, closer to our wildest dreams.
