Our Mekong: Views from Within, a collection of photography from around the Mekong region, on display at the FCC Angkor through April 5.
"Our Mekong: Views from Within" offers an intimate, insider's look at the Mekong region as documented by the photojournalist who call the area home.
On display at the FCC Angkor through April 5, the exhibit explores the six Mekong countries -- Burma, China, Cambodia, Lao PDR, Thailand and Vietnam -- and reveals the changes these counties have undergone in recent decades.
Once identified with conflict and division, the Mekong region of today is a place of rapid, uneven growth. It is a region of fast-opening borders, but also one still grappling with the challenges of poverty and human development.
After traveling on buses, airplanes, boats, tuk-tuks and motorbikes in search of their stories, these journalists -- all reporting from within a region home to them -- produced these stories with their lenses.
All of them are recent graduates of the "Imaging Our Mekong" media fellowship program, an annual program that encourages in-depth reporting on transboundary issues in the Mekong region. The fellowship is implemented by IPS Asia-Pacific and Probe Media Foundation Inc., which focuses on training TV professionals.
