ARTIST'S STATEMENT

I am a documentary and street photographer currently based in Vietnam. I am not good with words so I tell stories through my photography. My first photography approach was in January 2015, when I bought my first film camera – the rangefinder Yashica Electro 35GT. I took a ton of photographs and spent most of my money on buying and developing films. Shooting film, at the time, was a therapeutic photography practice that helped cure all my anxiety. Coming across an article about Vivian Maier, the American street photographer, by chance on the internet and was utterly astonished. Her story was so inspirational to me, which changed my life around since then. Since then, I practice photography more often, carrying a camera all the time, taking images of everything and everyone.
