In his series entitled ‘Cambodian Trees‘, Briend projects haunting images of Cambodian spirits and deities onto trees around Phnom Penh. The night time incarnation of these cultural figures, set against the urban environment of the capital city, gives these photos an incredible feel.

You can find the entire series on Briend’s website. For those interested in limited edition prints, Briend is represented by wall30.
