In recent years, more Asian photographers are emerging onto the international scene, producing work of oustanding calibre and giving exposure to little known issues from their region or their own countries.
However, one of the biggest obstacles faced by these photographers is the difficulty of finding financial funding to support their projects. In-depth, investigative work requires long periods of research, and without help, many of these projects cannot be realized.
The Reminders Project and the Angkor Photo Festival share a common mission in promoting and highlighting the work of emerging Asian photographers. They have now come together to take their support one step further with the Reminders Project Asian Photographers Grant.
