Acclaimed international photojournalist, Roland Neveu, was in the Club recently to launch his exhibition of compelling photographs that cover the horror and catastrophic years inflicted on the Cambodian people by the Pol Pot regime
In May 1975, as Cambodia was being cut off from the outside world, the Khmer Rouge expelled the last remaining foreigners over the Thai border at Poipet. Among them was photographer Roland Neveu. At the time, he had no inkling of the genocide that would be inflicted on this country. But for the next 30 years, he regularly visited Cambodia and its borders, working clandestinely at times, to document the horrors of war and the hopes for peace.
The pictures in this exhibition are quite unique and bear witness to his enduring interest and coverage of the Cambodian story. The photographs are published in his award-winning book, “Cambodia The Years of Turmoil”, now in its third edition. Many photographs appeared in leading international news magazines, books and exhibitions.
The exhibition runs until September 30n the Wall in the Main Ball.
