Unseen Prey Veng


Prey Veng (Long Forest) is the poorest province in Cambodia. According to the census in 2008, Prey Veng has a population of nearly a million people. This densely populated agricultural region is located on the east bank of the Mekong. The name literally means “long forest” in Khmer, but the last great forests have gradually disappeared there over 30 years to provide for agricultural land. These are the unseen images of this province.
