Colorful Humanity

Vietnam, 2015
Weaving through crowds of motorbikes and people on the streets of Ho Chi Minh City, Hoi An, and Hanoi, individuals engaging in everyday activities stopped me in my tracks, triggering impulses to fire off my camera. The results are the images presented here. A series of honest moments that celebrate the unique qualities of each city — the culture, geography, and development — but more importantly, highlight a few things that remained constant — vibrant colors, immense joy, and pure love.
If these images inspire you to learn about others, whether that means picking up a camera and engaging strangers, travelling the world and enjoying new foods, or simply browsing the web and reading about something you did not learn in school… I have done my job as an artist. At the end of the day, we are stronger and smarter when we learn about one another. And when you take that time to learn about others in a genuine way, it is impossible to see them as anything less than colorful human beings.
