A Friend’s Wedding

I spent a couple of days lately photographing the wedding of my friend, Duy Khoa.

Being around the event is a great chance to see the complicated process of Vietnamese wedding customs and get intense experience to learn the art of masculinity. Even though the wedding ran smoothly, he still made some mistakes that “didn’t follow the tradition” according to the old people, hope that he can perform better if he ever have another wedding.

Ly Son Island

Some shots from my recent trip to Ly Son, the closest island to the Paracel and the disputed water between Vietnam and China. It cradles a very diverse ecosystem with five mountains which lures tourists with its mysterious caves, imposing waterfalls, and splendid rivers and lakes but the beaches are full of trash as the population is growing and many projects for tourism are under construction.

Foundry 2014

I just spent an intensive week in Antigua, Guatemala for Foundry Photojournalism Workshop with the wonderful instructor Andrea Bruce from NOOR. Glad to see so many familiar faces as well as meeting and making friends with a ton of badass people.

For the workshop, I shot a story about Ezequiel, a local goat herder with his unique milk home delivery service.

Laguna Shore

Back to Laguna shore for a while for more fishing and cold Shiner before heading back to Cuba. The dolphin dream was broken this time but we found some baby drums and smiley stingrays instead.

Corpus Christi

I spent a week with the badass people from Prime Collective in Corpus Christi, a small coastal city of South Texas. During those days, I had chance to meet, make friends and go fishing with two gentlemen, Emmitt and Garland, in the Laguna Shore Village. We had breakfast and saw the sunrise in the middle of the sea, catch 100 pounds of Black Drum and met a dolphin.
