Just six months ago I wandered around this very place, making images for what would eventually become Hanoi Reflection. Last week I ventured back out there and I couldn't believe my eyes. So much has changed in the meantime. The foundations of new towers and sometimes even entire housing estates, are now visible, where just half a year ago there was not much more than a vast empty space. The speed at which the city, or some parts of it at least, is transforming, is incredible.
I took the opportunity to explore the same area all over again, seeing where those newly built roads would take me. I stumbled upon wastelands, old cemeteries, new construction projects and of course: neon-lit skies.
I thought my Hanoi photo project was done when I finished Hanoi Skin, Under The Skin and Hanoi Reflection. But it's not. Recently I've added Hanoi Isolation and now Hanoi Transformation as little addendums. I'm sure this is not the end. So I'm taking the liberty to keep going, and keep adding new bits and pieces to this project. Let's see where it takes me next.
