In the communist regime era of 1980s Cambodia, there was no television, making the book one of Rattana’s few sources of imagery. Rattana’s exhibitions include a group exhibition of mixed media art VAO (Visual Arts Open Cambodia, 9th to 31st December 2005) at the New Art Gallery, Phnom Penh and a group exhibition of photographers 3+1=4 at Popil Photo Gallery, Phnom Penh (Photo Installation). Rattana’s work was published in catalogue of the VAO exhibition and in the January-March 2006 issue of sarika magazine. An article about the VAO exhibition appeared in the winter 2006 issue of ArtAsiaPacific
