Feather Weight

Feather Weight

is a photo essay and a book on Cambodian boxing by John
Vink, a Belgian photographer based in Phnom Penh.


That and the prospect of free drink lured me to Le Popil, this last Friday (15 Sept).

bottle opener?
(Center: Stefan and Delphine: OK,where’s the bottle opener? Far right: people check out the book.)

The book is a compendium of some of John’s finest photos about Khmer boxing, with text by prolific writer/translator Christophe Macquet. (Okay, so it’s in French. Deal with it.)

It was fun to talk with John, and very interesting to see his choices of what to focus on – both the actual fighting and the seemingly mundane moments of training.
