I'm pleased to announce I'll be heading back to the wonders of Siem Reap to run TGL Cambodia this year with my friend and fellow photographer Paul Pichugin. Last year's full workshop experience was nothing short of life changing for our participants as well as us as leaders. From experiencing both the history and current day culture, working with the bright and smiling faces of talented students at Anjali, Paul and I are thrilled to be returning for another year in Cambodia. What will be doing there? Youth Education - teaching and encouraging self-expression, creativity, and confidence through photo education one-on-one with at-risk and street youth from Siem Reap.
