Last month I was commissioned to document a local community around the offices for one of my corporate clients in Ho Chi Minh City. I must say, I love the idea not just because it helps me keep the lights on, but because when local people visit the offices it will make them feel (hopefully) like the business is part of the local community. I wish I saw more companies in Vietnam developing these kind of ideas for corporate photography rather than the contrived realities normally done of what they wish Vietnam was like. We all live in neighborhoods like these and there is something special about them. When you send a photographer out to capture the local people and places I think the audience will respond better to the honesty and beauty found in their own neighborhood. At least that is my take.
Here are some of the images I captured while wandering around this particular neighborhood for the day. Thanks for looking.
