North Vietnam Photo Tour with QT Luong

Following our successful 2012 Vietnam photo tour (see also work by participants Mark Wainer, Barry Andrews, Ron Harris), I will be leading a new North Vietnam photo tour in collaboration with Insiders Asia from Dec 12 to Dec 22, 2014. Why North Vietnam ? The North has seen less economic development than the South. It […]

Mui Ne Beach, Vietnam

The Ho Chi Minh City project is simply “The image of the President in the City”: in each of the photographs, all made in Ho Chi Minh City, there is a depiction of Ho Chi Minh, for instance as framed portrait, poster, sculpture, bust, post stamp, post card, or book cover. The continued presence of […]

Ho Chi Minh City project

For family reasons, I’ve been spending a fair amount of time in Ho Chi Minh City almost every year. Besides photographing sights all over the city, as well as many aspects of everyday life, I’ve been working on a more focused project. Here are a dozen images from that series. Can you guess what the […]

DAY 10: Before breakfast, a few early rising photographers took a walk around Hoang Kiem Lake, the heart of Hanoi, just five minutes from our hotel, to see early rising residents exercising on the shores of peaceful lake in front of Turtle Tower.

Vietnam Photo Tour Diary 2

DAY 4: The previous evening, we saw some Saigon landmarks. In the early morning, we saw a more authentic Saigon by walking in narrow streets, checking out the so-called old Saigon market (a street market), and then the Ben Thanh market before proceeding to the airport. After landing in Da Nang, the pace changed. We […]

Vietnam Photo Tour Diary 1

Since I am currently in Vietnam for the holidays, that’s as good a time as any to start a series of postings about the 2012 Vietnam photo tour. Those postings will illustrate all the sites that we visited during the tour, using images I took during the tour, with the goal of providing past participants […]

New images: Mui Ne Sand Dunes, Vietnam

Mui Ne‘s reputation as resort is growing, but besides the beach, there is also an interesting mix of natural and cultural elements, found north of the resort area. Despite development in the resort area, the fishing village (Lang Chai) hasn’t changed much. I found the fishing beach particularly lively and active in the morning, when […]

New images: the park, Ho Chi Minh City

As seen in the two previous posts, there are plenty of sights and views in Saigon – more “interesting” than “spectacular” – however what interests me the most in that city is simply to observe and capture simple moments of life. In many places, I’ve been threatened verbally for taking photographs of people. In my […]
