Juxtaposing Vietnam’s incredible past and present.
Vietnamese photographer Khánh Hmoong combines visuals from two eras within one frame. By holding a superimposed photograph from the past over his chosen landscape, Hmoong merges two periods of time, juxtaposing their similarities and differences. Each photograph is meticulously aligned within its original destination, exposing the changes that have occurred in the area. The effects of time are visible through the environment’s shift in architecture, the people’s fashion choices, and the transformation in transportation - whether it be a modernization from horses to vehicles or simply from dated automotive models to modern design.
Regardless of location, comparing the past and present through images is always a fascinating look at history and change. Hmoong’s series reveals so much about the history of Vietnam without words and actually makes the viewer want to learn more.

Look up at the sky on March 11, and take a picture and send it to me. Come rain or shine. I will put them into one big sky picture and exhibit it in the disaster-stricken areas.

I submitted a picture of a blue sky.
Last year in Tokyo, the sky was cloudy. Cloudy and cold and oppressive. March 11 was the first time I felt afraid.
