McDermott Gallery, Siem Reap

#13 of 31 in Museums in Siem Reap
We exhibit a definitive collection of fine art photography of Angkor by John McDermott.



McDermott Gallery first opened its doors at the FCC Angkor in 2004, one of the few galleries in Southeast Asia exclusively dedicated to fine art photography. Exhibits included artists such as Kenro Izu, John McDermott, and Jaroslav Poncar, in the days when Angkor was first being rediscovered by world travelers after decades of turmoil. The following years saw an explosion in creativity in Siem Reap, as international artists flocked to the town for inspiration and Cambodian artists reclaimed their artistic heritage, pursing new styles and themes.

In fall of 2012, we opened a gallery at the Raffles Grand Hotel d'Angkor, exhibiting "Elegy," the definitive collection of John McDermott's historic images of the temples of Angkor.

  • A gallery where you can find some pictures made by a famous photographer, who came to Cambodia before the boom tourism and took amazing pictures of some places here in Cambodia. He used infrared film, so the pictures have a strange glow that make the photos even more epic. The visit is free, you can buy products inside. Definitely worth it.
  • Unfortunately it seems closed. A lot of construction going on and the access road is closed.
