TP. Hanoi - Capital City: People

Vietnam - a society on the brink of change: in 2013 & 2014 I had the opportunity to document people in Ho Chi Minh City as well as Hanoi for two photo books in collaboration with Goethe Institute Hanoi.

With the question in mind how they create their personal environment, I photographed people in their homes or in their workspaces, which sometimes blends into one. Vietnam is still deeply connected to their cultural values and traditions, but one can already see changes and new influences especially amongst the younger generation. How this affects the soul of the country remains to be seen.
