Cambodia is one of the fifteen countries of the world with the greatest economic growth in recent years, but one third of Cambodia’s population lives on less than a dollar a day. On the shores of the Tonle Sap - Cambodia’s “Great Lake” - a small settlement of fishermen who can no longer fish hides under posters of international aid projects, and provides a clear example of the complicated system of the humanitarian business in Southeast Asia.
People are forced to move kilometers away every year as the water rises from the Great Lake to flood surrounding villages. Unable to fish anymore since a law passed in 2006 outlawed fishing with small nets, a community of 200 people lives under makeshift shelters in extreme poverty; their only income comes from hunting crickets at night.
Situated only a few kilometers away from the city of Siem Reap, home to the famous Angkor temples, Chong Kneas is visited by hundreds of thousands of tourists every year, who rent boats to tour the Great Lake, while often ignoring the dire situation of the people residing on its shores.
Residents say they face widespread malnutrition, a lack of potable water and few employment opportunities. In the afternoon, the sky darkens and rain drops begin to fall. ”Drinking water,” says one resident, as he fills buckets with rain water. They collect rain water to survive.

Finding Color and Texture Everywhere with @hellocolor
For more from Pawel, follow @hellocolor on Instagram.
For Pawel Nolbert (@hellocolor), there are interesting patterns and colors waiting to be found in the most obvious of places. Originally from mid-west Poland and now working as an illustrator and graphic designer in Warsaw, Pawel aims to highlight pleasant compositions of colors and textures by finding a new perspective in seemingly mundane places.
"I tend to focus on selected objects," he explains. "Very often I find interest in details that people normally ignore and don’t pay attention to."
Pawel says he took some time to find a conceptual and deliberate approach to using Instagram as a form of photographic exploration, inspired by other creative accounts he was following such as @josecabaco and @drdefense.
"I got inspired by the creative mobile photography coming straight from my smartphone and I was instantly able to share photos of my own too. After some time using Instagram in a ‘regular’ way, I started to try to create photos rather than just take them, so to speak. On my way back from work, I would walk an extra mile to explore my city and find good photo spots in the fancy and the seemingly dull districts. I really got into it that way—and I got to know Warsaw better."
Pawel aims to inspire others with his distinctive perspective: “I hope my photography can help people see the creative potential in their everyday surroundings. Sometimes it’s just good to stop and look around the corner to see a new world that had always been there, waiting to be seen.”
