Photobook: Portraits of Vietnam

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

My photobook, Portraits of Vietnam, is available now. Hotly anticipated by members of my immediate family, it’s a collection of seventy-odd portrait pictures taken over fourteen months in various locations in Vietnam: Ho Chi Minh City / Saigon, the Mekong Delta, Dalat and the central highlands, Hanoi, and the north-western province of Lao Cai. I’ve taken other kinds of picture and been to other countries over that period, but portraits are the pictures that I most enjoy taking, and Vietnam has been my been my home for most of the last five years, so Vietnamese portraits seemed like an obvious theme for a book.

Portraits of Vietnam is available to buy here for £33 (about 50 USD). You can see a preview of the whole thing for free (exactly 0 USD) by clicking here.  The 96 page, 8×10 inch softcover book is self-published through blurb.  I realise it’s not cheap, but I’ve tried to keep costs down as much as I can, and I promise not to be offended if nobody buys a copy.

    Those portraits here and on your blurb are amazing! They make me feel like there is a really magnificent story behind each photo and person that makes me want to know so much more!
