The small town of Siem Reap – which provides access to the temples of Angkor – is crossed by a long canal on which around twenty bridges have been built, most of them wooden. In recent years and due to the transformations of the city which wants to adapt more and more to the tourist flow, some have been destroyed and replaced by concrete bridges to allow cars to use them. Baty Morokot documented, calmly and in color, the permanent activity on these old bridges, which are essential to everyone, used by both pedestrians and motorbikes.
