Dedicated to fine art photography of Asia, McDermott Gallery was founded in 2004 by photographer John McDermott. The New York Times called him the Ansel Adams of Angkor, writing that "McDermott's pictures are not just beautiful but iconic." McDermott Gallery has two locations in Siem Reap: at FCC Angkor and at Raffles Grand Hotel d'Angkor. Additional work may also be viewed at Belmond La Residence d'Angkor and Anantara Hotel & Spa.

John's work is beautiful. It's interesting to visit and see his work. If you go to the gallery before visiting the temples, his work will inspire you. If you go to the gallery after you visit the temples, you will appreciate how good his work really is. There are galleries at Raffles and the Foreign Correspondents Club. His book Elegy... More

We stopped in to check out the gallery after having a drink in the hotel bar. The pieces on display are plentiful and gorgeous black and white works, all images of the Angkor Temples. We purchased one piece after taking a look at all the works and look forward to having the piece framed soon. Highly recommend stopping in here... More

A nice small gallery with interesting infrared work. I can't imagine it gets too many visitors but u was really impressed with the photos.

Couldn't find where to review the Raffles gallery. Amazing images that will whet your appetite if you've not yet been to the temples or make you yearn to go again. Free entry and only found as we went for afternoon tea at the hotel.

I found this gallery by accident one evening and was glad I found it! The gallery I visited is not connected to a hotel and has only one level, not two. (I understand there is more than one gallery in Siem Reap.) There are amazing photographs, ranging in price from very expensive to very affordable (posters, cards). I had hoped... More

McDermott is a brilliant photographer who presents his work using art printing methods. The larger top of the range pictures are very expensive - we bought mid range - but everyone can afford the postcards

A real gem and quite unexpected. A wonderful serene quiet space, kick off your shoes and walk around the mat covered floor. It´s better this way. The exhibit showed some wonderful photografie of old. A friendly, attitude free assistants is eager to answer all your questions and beyond.

The photos are beautiful and I really wish I had brought enough money to purchase a poster, which are rather affordable!

If you have an affinity for photography, this is a great place to visit. Beautiful sepia photographs of the local area and Cambodian people and places. Well done.
