Requiem

October 5, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Presented in partnership with Reportage, festival of documentary photography.
Between the height of the French Indochina War in the fifties and the fall of Phnom Penh and Saigon in 1975, 135 photographers from all sides of the conflict are recorded as missing or having been killed. This exhibition is a memorial to those men and women. Tim Page, renowned photographer who produced many of the iconic images taken during the Vietnam War, has gathered thousands of pictures taken by those who were killed or went missing. The Requiem exhibition is a selection of those photos.

Captured by both Cambodian and foreign photographers, Requiem documents Cambodia in its last death throws, before the country fell to the Khmer Rouge on April 17th 1975. Once in power, the Khmer Rouge had no need for publicity, no call for the media who they targeted indiscriminately. Most were ambushed summarily, executed or marched into captivity. Requiem is a collection of their photos, the photos they sacrificed their lives to take.
