I went to a fashion show a couple of weeks back. I was asked by a friend of mine to go and shoot some of the clothes and models. After talking some more about fashion with some of the Vietnamese designers i was interested in their lives and work. I may pursue a story at later this year in order to shed some light on this thriving and competitive world where looks and attitudes rein supreme.
My brother is visiting me. So my girlfriend and I thought it would be a good idea to go down to Hoi An for a couple of days to relax.
I grabbed my flash light and my camera bag to see if i can get an opportunity to try out a couple of ideas i have had for some photo. These photos are of some local girls ridding their bikes.
The other thing i really love about going to Hoi An is that the local food is so different than in Hanoi. Here is a photo of a man selling some of those lovely noodles in Hoi An.
The allies of Hoi An are small and provide the casual walker an easy idea of what life would have been like here in the early 1900’s. Every house you walk by you can see people through their old windows going about their daily routine.
The next day we had decided to go to an old ruin called My Son.
All in all it was a great little trip.
My multimedia piece about leprosy villages in Vietnam and a story about one resident is published on the Vewd documentary photojournalism magazine.
