The vast expanse of stalls, bazaars and the endless waves of buyers, vendors, tourists and locals, make up the bright atmosphere of the Old Market, located in the heart of Siem Reap in Cambodia. As I spend more time there, something else is revealed. Within the lively atmosphere of the market moments of stillness exist, they express the slowness of time, suggesting the mundane reality and fatigue that accompanies the hard work of these characters in this colorful market.
