About the Author


In May 2019, AngkorDatabase and Archimages Cambodia started a fruitful collaboration aimed at making an impressive iconographic fund easily accessible to researchers and all Angkor lovers.

Since the 1990s, librarian-editor Jean-Jacques Donard and photographer Philippe Bataillard have been identifying, collecting, digitizing in high resolution and labeling some 40,000 iconographic documents around South East Asia. 

National archives, private collections, published yet hard-to-find art and history books, have been thoroughly reviewed and digitized with utmost care in order to keep the memory alive.
