The series VIET-CAM is inspired by Vietnamese culture, where the tradition collides with contemporary technology.
In Vietnam, the contrast of modern and old is very tangible and the values of the young generation are changing. They see the world through lenses of iPhones, taking photographs of each special food or occasion. This phenomenon is expressed with the element of the exaggeration and humour, focusing partly on the connection of the traditional architecture, vietnamese nature and new technology.
This series reflects author’s memories while travelling in DaNang, HaNoi, Hue and Hoi An with the Vietnamese friend and taking photographs of her wedding and traditional ceremonies in the buddhist temples.
The project consists of polaroid photoshoots from streets of Vietnam, fashion images from London inspired by author’s experience and 35mm snapshot images from travels, which show some inspiration and complete the atmosphere of the series.
