Waking up to exploding bombs with cameras, lenses over shoulders, and heading back to refugee camps were once my vision of self as a war correspondent when I was a child.
I am a visual narrator growing up during the 1990s in Hanoi (Vietnam), a millennium-old capital that has become a center of politics and culture in South East Asia.
I use photography as well as other approaches to document and share stories about social and environmental issues, focusing on the underprivileged. Adopting multi-media techniques such as interviewing, researching, and data-analyzing from my 14-year journalism background, I explore my subject matters conceptually and critically, with a touch of humor.
I have several projects in progress: an investigative study about domestic violence, literature research about air pollution with regards to microplastics, and a photobook of a unique shelter for deaf teenagers in central Vietnam.
I believe in humanity, in one's self-awareness and self-reflection.
