This is Colin Grafton's new website. He has exhibited already at the Bophana Centre and Meta House.

I'm pretty sure your 'waiting for a haircut...where?'photo was taken on Sothearos Blvd just before the entrance to Aeon Mall, on the left if you are coming from MTT...there is a small pagoda nearby, not sure of the name

Many thanks for sharing!

I really love those old-time black and white photos and the one thing that sticks in my mind is the girls in the portraits section, of how beautiful
and playful they were even in those days of destruction.


I wonder where Annih is now ?

Great photos and very interesting to see the early times.
Sadly a lot of these subjects may have not made it through to see your return.

I was on a phone when I posted earlier so hadn't really seen the site yet. It's fantastic, loads of fascinating photos and information. I have to admire the man's sense of adventure, going to teach English in a country in the middle of a civil war, taking trips into the countryside and to the front lines, coming back from the beach to find his neighbors houses all destroyed in a rocket account etc.
