Red River brick factories (III)

161120-293-edited-2

These crumbling, dusty, ramshackle brick factories just outside Hanoi were one of my favourite photography destinations last year. As well as the striking colours and patterns, I hope that these pictures convey something of the resilience of the factory workers, and the fine balance between disorder and routine. I keep meaning to go back and shoot some more there. In the absence of new new pictures, here are some new old pictures from last autumn, which I had intended to post these a couple of months ago, only for them to slip through the net somehow.

    A wonderful series of photographs. I can see why it’s a favourite place. And yes you did convey the resilience of the workers. I can’t even imagine . . . .
    It reminded me of women on building sites in India carrying loads of bricks in a pan on their head!

    Marvellous images giving a wonderful insight into the way they build. I have so enjoyed this series. These are the kind of photos I would love to have taken if Id been there 😊
