Without an H

Photography from south-east Asia by Jon Sanwell

A birdcage, a kettle and some other things

Untitled-8

You know that you’ve been living in Hanoi for a long time when you don’t notice that there’s a severed pig’s head in a bowl of water by your feet. Wherever you live, it’s easy to take the details for granted, which is partly why I set myself the task this week of photographing some of the colours, shapes, patterns and objects I see all the time in Hanoi. I didn’t get a picture of the pig’s head – it was moving too fast – but the city had plenty of other things to offer.

    these are beautiful photos. i’ve been in Bangkok for a year now. it’s a good idea to photograph things that at first startled you, then becomes something ordinary…

    In different countries people seem to store things in different places.
