‘Requiem’ Curated by Tim Page

Monday, April 29th, 2013

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.

An official part of the 2013 Reportage Festival Requiem will feature in the Vivid footprint as a part of the Rocks Pop Up initiative.

Arien Chang Castan ‘A Traves de mis Ojos (Through My Eyes): A young photographer’s perspective of Cuba’

Monday, April 29th, 2013

An official part of the 2013 Reportage Festival Program

‘A Traves de Mis Ojos (Through My Eyes)’ A young photographer’s perspective of Cuba

Arien Chang Castan’s ‘A Traves de mis Ojos’ (Through my Eyes) is the window into a changing Cuba viewed from the perspective of one of its most prominent emerging documentary photographers.

In 2003, Arien Chang Castan began to work as a documentary photographer. For seven years he worked primarily with black and white film. In the beginning, his work dealt with diverse themes such as urban landscapes, portraits, and various aspects of Cuban life. Yet all of this is a prologue to his current work.

Inspired by the work of Cartier-Bresson, Sebastiao Salgado, Bruce Davidson, and Eugene Smith, Arien has developed a series that, in a certain way, reveals an alternate reality within the changing Cuban society. Arien’s work focuses especially in areas within Cuban society that are generally ignored in Cuban documentary photography. Themes like the rodeo, gay culture, and bodybuilding are reflected in his work, always portrayed with an artistic, conceptual vision that enriches the image.

Since 2010, Arien has collaborated with the Santa Fe Photographic Workshops. He has worked with groups from San Jose University, California as well. He visited Venezuela with the intent to produce a book of photography about the Caribbean. He has given conferences in important institutions in Cuba like the Instituto Superior de Arte (ISA), in the Writers Union and Cuban Artists (UNEAC), and the Ludwig Foundation of Cuba. His work has been on display at the Fototeca de Cuba, The National Museum of Fine Arts, and at the Bienal de La Habana.
