4 photographers including Le The Thang, Huynh Phuc Hau, Ngo Huy Hoa and Tran Nam Thuong have taken many trips during the last 7 years in order to record the landscape of Vietnam, both natural and daily life from different angles, with various feelings.
Photographer Ngo Huy Hoa, known as Hachi 8 is sharing her set of photos about the poles and the tops of his Fatherland.
The mainland of Vietnam is diverse in terrain and the territory is marked by 4 extreme points: East, West, South, North and the imposing peak of Fansipan. Discovering these places is always the strong desire of many young Vietnamese.
He said: “in my opinion, to deeply understanding about something, we must understand its most thorny features. For Vietnam, those features are the extreme points in the remote areas and the mountains covered by fog all year round”.
“Each destination I’ve been to has its own characteristics related to landscapes, customs, culture, cuisine and people. Those differences make me realize that, each visited region is a puzzle piece containing love for country that I’m looking for and filling in my heart. Touching the corners of the fatherland, I feel my love for this beautiful country. I would like to spread that love to everyone knowing about Vietnam – my homeland.
Tran Nam Thuong photographer (artistic name: Aged Cat) is, at the same time, inspired by the majestic beauty of the Northwest region. He wrote: “I’ve first been to the Northwest in 2010 and then have come back frequently. Having visited to many difference regions and countries, the mountainous area of Northwest still occupies an importance position in my crisscrossing journeys”.
Talking about transport mean, photographer Aged Cat said that motorbike is his partner during his alone journeys.
Photographer Le The Thang (artistic name as Thang Soi) chooses the angle from above to take photos with the album “Vietnam seen from the sky”. After graduating from Hanoi University of Theater and Cinema, Thang has traveled everywhere with a camera and the passion on photography to record the real moments about Vietnamese nature and people. Especially, he is interested in taking photos from above.
The photographer does not remember how many provinces he has been to, but he knows that there are still many destinations waiting for him. He wish he could arrive to many regions to describe the distinctions of culture, landscapes or heritages there from above.
The photo album of Le The Thang was finished in 2 years. He is the person to activate the project of “Vietnam seen from sky” film which has strongly impressed the community in recent time. The album helps visitors have a general and strange view about beautiful attractions in Vietnam in a very different way.
Photographer Huynh Phuc Hau is known as “the Messenger of the Southern region”. He always gives this land a special love. He is passionate about recording the nice moments in different time and space including the floating season, the firm beauty of local people in wetlands, Cham girls with black eyes and so on.
This photo album was conducted in more than 10 years. He said: “taking photos is a meeting and it is true. In this immeasurable world, people see their home land again; between the hustle and too fast life pace with technology, people meet with each other. To my thinking, those two meetings (with nature and with people) are implemented thanks to photograph.
“Going and photographing make me realize that our country is so pretty. My love to this country has been strengthened for each time I take photos. I love my homeland, love the simple beauty of nature and love the people who are rustic but honest and diligent. I have met and stayed with them. I have been given and taken from many friends everywhere. I’m so happy.” He said.
