Ti Tit

Ti Tit was born on the 18thof August, 1991, in Battambang, Cambodia. At age of 5, he changed his name to Sorn Seyhaktit. He studied a Bachelor of French at the Royal University of Phnom Penh. In 2012, aged 19, he began working as a Communication Officer Assistant in an NGO helping deaf children, where he was inspired, and created numerous short stories and photographs.

After graduation in 2014, he started working for Institut Français du Cambodge (French Institute of Cambodia) as a Secretary of Cultural Services. In 2015, he exhibited his first photographs, Photo Phnom Penh Exhibition (one of the biggest photo-event in Southeast-Asia). In the same year, the young artist was invited to Lille, France, for the first time, by Christian Caujolle, Artistic Director of VU Agency, for the exhibition.

Ti Tit writes articles and photographs his environment, starting with himself, his family/friends. He plays, provokes, mixes truth and fiction, and tell stories that turns out to be joke and really stands out in Cambodian society, which generally takes itself more seriously - at least in appearance.
