Mrenh Gongveal by KeithAKelly
Mrenh Gongveal
Mrenh Gongveal: Chasing the Elves of the Khmer is a photo essay that delves into a common, but lesser understood, belief of the Cambodians. While learning about the culture and customs of Cambodia, my adopted home of 10 years, I was especially fascinated by their folklore. One particular type of shrine dedicated to the Mrenh Gongveal, Elves of the Khmer, caught my imagination. As a personal project I started documenting the more interesting “houses” I came across during my travels. While talking to people, most could give little explanation for the houses other than they “brought luck.” Wanting to know more lead the me upon a 5 year journey collecting photos and information, which is presented in this book.
