Who is Thanh Nguyen?
Photography is my real passion, and for the last four years, I have spent time taking pictures of seascapes, cityscapes and the countryside I find that taking pictures helps me to alleviate stress after a long working week in my role as a Sales Executive in the Graphics Arts Industry.
I live in the countryside, close enough to the city to be able to commute easily. Over the years, I have seen how the expansion of the city has meant less rural areas, which is a real shame because I think the scenic beauty and tranquillity of the countryside should be embraced. I like to take pictures of areas outside of the city so I can keep those memories with me as the city grows and reduces the size of the countryside.
I also enjoy taking photos of seascapes, such as the Vietnam coastline which is over 3,000km in length. And of course, while my true love is the countryside, I can’t ignore the dominating buildings found in cities. They make for excellent shots and really capture the essence of city living.
