Photography can be a mirror and reflect life as it is, but I also think it is possible to walk, like Alice, through the looking-glass and find another world with the camera.

Contemporary Vietnamese. Most of them seem to be in a state of suspension – between the past and the present, tradition and modernity, dreams and reality. Half-asleep, half-awake, in a way absent. Not here, somewhere else. The series ‘1318 / Việt Nam’ portrays them and tries to capture the undefinable. It encompasses two realms – apart from being a social documentary, it is as well a journey ‘through the looking-glass’.
