Photographer/writer Wubin was commissioned by the Chinese Heritage Centre in Singapore to shoot and research on Chinatowns in Southeast Asia. The resulting work was published as a book earlier this year and he is showing his work at Bophana Audiovisual Resource Centre in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, from July 9 – 31.

Chinatowns have always been a mainstay in most large cities in the world. During my travels, I’m inexplicably drawn to these places, perhaps due to my heritage and a longing for familiarity. Each Chinatown is unique yet similar in many ways. Wubin’s project could be easily lost without a contextual background or understanding of the subject.
