Travelling through a constant flow of 100 million people makes everyone less and less able of noticing small differences. But what was so special about these few faces that made me stop and reach out for my camera? While the barrier of language kept out valuable details it's the character that displays how they see themselves as the spirit of Vietnam.
To challenge myself, a decision was made to bring only four rolls of film for the whole trip. With such a low amount of film, it eventually pushed me to try harder for each shot. That meant to search for subjects and interact with them until they were ready to reveal themselves a bit more than a usual 'victory' sign.
