Snaps: Pouts and snouts

An early-morning pig’s head in Siem Reap.

I took this photograph while out on an early-morning visit to Siem Reap’s Old Market with Joannès Rivière, owner of Cuisine Wat Damnak. Seeing him banter with all of the market sellers was amazing, and made the pain of waking up at 6:30am worth it.

This freshly-slaughtered pig was laid out on the table and every bit of it, from snout to intestines, was for sale. The Brits think they’ve caught onto something gourmet with nose to tail cooking, but Cambodians have been doing it forever.
