Delhi Photo Festival 2015: Sophal Neak's "Hang On" series

Delhi Photo Festival

Sophal Neak is pursuing her exploration of contemporary Cambodian society. After a series of pictures in the countryside, she is now working in the city.

Always putting the question of identity at the centre of her work, she asked men and women to pose for her in the street, hiding their faces behind the objects that characterize them.

Each one loses their identity behind that which ultimately characterizes all their work.

Choosing each time the perfect distance, without effect, the photographer builds a strange documentary series, an inventory of functions behind which the individual disappears.

We get a sense of a rigid society, stress and no real possibility of escape.
