The Phnom Penh post recently announced the winner of the Angkor Photo Festival.
Carrie Lam from Singapore won the first prize for her photo-story title “Cure.” Carrie took a series of self-portraits in which she confronts her own fears and discomfort at the ugliness of a scar that runs down her spine, the result of scoliosis.
“We didn’t really hesitate at all when we saw her photos,” said festival program director Françoise Callier who was also on the jury panel. “We were looking for photographers who are really in their story, and of course you can’t get more in than Carrie was. Hers was a very soft story that moved me a lot, even before I knew what had happened to her.” (quote from Phonm Penh post)
