On the first day I landed at Ho Chi Min airport in the afternoon then I had an interconnecting flight to Hoi An where I was staying. I remember being picked up by a taxi at the airport and driving past buildings that looked like they were about to fall apart and people doing their washing up on the road. This was my first glimpse at the living conditions of the vietnamese. It started to make me think how lucky we actually are and how much we take for granted.

Spotlight: Matthieu Lhotellerie

In this blog post Matthieu Lhotellerie tells me a little bit about himself and his love for photography. Matthieu Lhotellerie has produced some great photos showing different types of cultures and people.

I always had a fascination for photography and travel, cultivating them with exhibits, books & documentaries, but never owned even a compact camera until recently. Strangely I started photography because of a comic book called “Le photographe” (an appropriated name), a fascinating story from a photojournalist covering a humanitarian mission in Afghanistan during the 80’s. The book mix drawings and his amazing B&W pictures, and after reading it, I saved money for a secondhand Nikon D80.
