A River’s Tail: The Kingdom of Cambodia - Luc Forsyth

Known largely for the infamous dark days of rule under the genocidal Khmer Rouge, Cambodia is less developed than neighbouring Vietnam, but its dependence on the Mekong river is no less pronounced. From the all important artisanal fishing industry to the great interior floodplains that supply much of the country’s staple food, rice, and the multitude of people and cultures who populate the river’s banks, Cambodia is very much connected to the Mekong.

Among Southeast Asian nations, Cambodia’s relationship to the Mekong river is unique because of “The Great Lake”: The Tonle Sap. Located in the heart of the nation the Tonle Sap is the region’s fresh water body and one of the world’s most productive inland fisheries. Each year the Mekong swells with monsoon rains and surges into the lake, providing nutrients and sediment critical to the fish stocks that provide up to 70% of Cambodians’ protein intake.

Produced in partnership with Lien Aid (, a Singapore based organization focusing on water issues throughout Asia, these images represent a visual summary of a series of multimedia stories from the Mekong in The Kingdom of Cambodia. Imagery from phase three of the A River's Tail project in Laos will be coming to Photojournale in the coming months, and the full collection of articles can be found at

Part one of the series in Vietnam’s Mekong delta can be found on Photojournale by following this link.
