Photographer's Note

Some forms of transport are inextricably linked with a particular place; Think yellow school buses in the United States, or a London black cab. Introduced to Phnom Penh streets in the 30s, the popular three-wheeler cyclos are recognisably Cambodian. They are still the vehicle of choice for women returning from market with piles of groceries and older people who prefer the slower pace. But it looks like a dying profession largely because they have been replaced by much faster motorbikes, moped taxis and tuk tuks.

We could actually had pretty rides in the past, but now it is more hazardous due to terrible traffic and pollution in the city. The roads have become busier than ever before and virtually all life happens next to the road.

Still, for this man the cyclo is the only means of his only property.

In his cycle he lives,,,
