If you're not from this region, you probably know of Cambodia because of its brutal, communist regime of the 1970s, the Khmer Rouge. Even today it's the main news that makes it to the international pages because of the current war crimes tribunal.
Last weekend we met up with Al Rockoff, a photojournalist who covered that era, and the fall of Phnom Penh, for publications like The New York Times and Newsweek. Al comes back every few months, and this time Skateistan Cambodia finally got around to buying some of his darkroom prints. How does this tie into skateboarding? Out of the set he had, we picked up one that artist and skateboarder Shepard Fairey licensed for a collaboration under his Obey company. Al said some of them are also board designs now.
