Memories (Cambodia, 2012)


Late in the afternoon, Phuong (61) is relaxing in her hammock on the veranda of her floating house, surrounded by memories, plastic flowers and a very pink wall. In fact, the whole village she lives in, Chong Kos, floats on the Tonlé Sap River, including barber shops, petrol stations and supermarkets. Many of the residents, including Phuong, are ethnic Vietnamese. They live from what the river has to offer and sell their goods at the local market of nearby Kompong Chnang. You’ll find more examples of this unique floating lifestyle along the Tonlé Sap River. Some of the villages are actually moved up or down the river when the waterlevel rises or drops.
