The best thing about our time in Nha Trang was getting to meet and view the work of Long Thanh, one of the most gifted photographers I've ever seen. This man picked up his first camera during the Vietnam war when, as a young man, he was sent to work with his uncle who had a photography shop in order to protect him and give him a livelihood other than being caught up in the war tearing the country apart. Working in black and white, his being Vietnamese gave him an access to the culture and people in a way no outside photographer could ever gain. His images are provocative and create a sense of place and feeling in a way I could only dream of doing with my own photography someday. I've posted his website below and hope you will go and enjoy some of the images of this very interesting, and very sociable photographer.
