Portraits of Vietnam

Photography tells a story.

The the richness of all my travels often comes down to meeting the other. Because, for me, going on a trip also means discovering the culture of the country by meeting its inhabitants. During my short stay in Vietnam, I met people who were rich in emotion and sharing. I want to share these few portraits to pay tribute to these people I had the chance to meet. To show their beauty and their differences. Behind each of these photos hides an exchange, sometimes brief, sometimes more intimate. Some people smile while waiting to receive something in return, others take a break after talking with you for hours…

Spending only two weeks in Vietnam, I didn’t have many opportunities to talk and meet Vietnamese people. However, some encounters were very touching: when we do not speak the same language, we only have gestures, looks and smiles to communicate… But deep down, do we really need more to make ourselves understood and to share?

Here are some portraits from Vietnam. These faces, these looks, these smiles tell a story…

Behind the scenes…

All over the world, fear of the stranger is omnipresent. You fear those who are different from you, who do not dress like you, who do not eat like you or who do not pray like you. This is the observation I have made for several years. Just when I began to be attracted by this other person, by difference. This is how my passion for photography (portraits) was born.
