UNITY: Book Launch with Kim Hak

Book Launch: Unity, a photography book by Kim Hak

6-8pm Saturday, November 9th, 2013, Java Café downstairs

FREE event, refreshments served

Please join us at Java Café for the book launch of Kim Hak’s photography book, Unity and talk by the author.  This event falls purposely on the Cambodian Independence Day, a historical moment that was orchestrated by the late King Father Norodom Sihanouk who is the subject of the book.

Unity is, first and foremost, the coming together of an entire country, Cambodia, whose people are united by deep sorrow. It is the sorrow of a nation whose citizens gathered effortlessly and suddenly dressed in a uniform of white and black to mourn the death of King Father Norodom Sihanouk.

Of this unity, photographer Kim Hak bears witness whilst being immersed in the intertwining of a country succumbing to death and grief. The mourning is his mourning—he is only one amongst the millions who gathered in front of the Royal Palace and at the site of the late King’s cremation ceremony.

During the event, Hak will talk about the making of the book, present a selection of images, and sign books.  Unity will be sale at a special price for one night only at Java Café.
