In the Kingdom of Cambodia (population 14 million), one of the world's poorest developing countries, most poeple still use crudely produced charcoal as fuel for their daily cooking - even in Phnom Penh, the sprawling capital city of 2 million.

This is part of a series of black and white portraits of charcoal vendors, mostly lovely women (with dirty hands), in my Phnom Penh neighborhood near Psar Kandal, a bustling working-class market area not far from the National Museum and the Royal Palace.

    Steve, your portraits tell huge stories, each one of them. Love them. Probably you add contrast to make more dramatic moments; i personally would reduce a bit of contrast (very personal). Anyhow, they are fantastique.

    One hell of a shot - or rather another hell of a shot - Your photography captivates and fascinates.
