About Ron Gresham

Ron Gresham

My name is Ron Gresham. I’ve been living in Siem Reap, Cambodia since February 2011. Like many foreigners who live here, I came to Cambodia for vacation. A twist of fate caused my departing flight out of Cambodia to be cancelled at the last minute. While all of the other passengers were grumbling about the inconvenience, I found myself sitting in the airport with a big smile. I decided to stay longer.

I work as a lecturer at the university now. I think it is one of the best jobs in the world. I get to meet some of the most outstanding young people in the area. In my free time, I like to get on my bicycle and take my camera out into the countryside. Often I go with a small group of friends and we stop somewhere to rest or eat along the way. Some of my best memories of my time here come from those moments. If this is your first time in Cambodia, I hope that you get the chance to get away from the city and temples to enjoy some time in the countryside.

When people ask me about my photos, I always try to emphasize the fact that I don’t really know much about photography. I just try to document what I see. The photos in this exhibit were taken with a Canon 600D camera or, sometimes, a small point-and-shoot Canon PowerShot SD1400 IS. As anyone who has ever visited Cambodia knows, it is a photographer’s dream.

When the Soria Moria hotel approached me about this project, I was honored and thrilled about the possibility of doing something meaningful with the photos. If you see any photos you’d like to have, there are smaller prints of the photos available in the hotel lobby. All proceeds from the sale of the photos will benefit the scholarship fund of the Soria Moria Educational Development Program, which sponsors many young people to attend university here in Siem Reap.
