New photobook: Hanoi (Portraits of the City)

front-cover

It’s the Christmas gift no-one’s been waiting for. I’ve self-published my new photobook, Hanoi (Portraits of the City). It’s available as a print book or e-book through blurb.co.uk.

A neighbourhood that straddles the railway tracks; a market that offers everything under the sky; intimate portraits of the men and women of the city; the details, textures and patterns that get lost in the background; and fragments of the everyday life seen in the streets, alleys, cafes and lakes of Hanoi.

This 150 page photobook, compiled over two years, is a personal journey through the city I’ve come to call home.

Downriver

My photobook, Downriver, is still available through blurb.co.uk.

In the summer of 2013, I spent four months following the Mekong river through south-east Asia. From the Xishuangbanna region in China’s Yunnan province, I travelled into northern Laos, crossed the river for a brief visit to Thailand, then continued down through the southern tail of Laos and into eastern Cambodia, before finishing my journey in the Mekong delta region in southern Vietnam. The book is a collection of my photographs and thoughts from the trip.

The 136 page book is available as an 8×10 in softcover book or as a PDF download. Click here to order or to see a limited preview.

Five countries, four months, one river.

In the summer of 2013, I spent four months following the Mekong river through south-east Asia. From the Xishuangbanna region in China’s Yunnan province, I travelled into northern Laos (making my apologies to Burma), crossed the river for a brief visit to Thailand, then continued down through the southern tail of Laos and into eastern Cambodia, before finishing my journey in the Mekong delta region in southern Vietnam. This book is a collection of my photographs and thoughts from the trip.

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.
