Faces keep fascinating me. Some time ago I already told you in an article how much emotions in portrait photography fascinate me. Human emotions can literally be read in our faces. With the exception of extremely good poker players, perhaps. And that’s exactly why I find faces especially thrilling. One and the same face can be taken a thousand times and yet you’ll never succeed in capturing it in an identical way.
Everyone living in a big city can at least picture how unbearable the situation of people captured in the photos taken by Michael Wolf must be like. In the summer months, in particular, public transport isn’t a place to feel very good. In cities with an extremely high population density it won’t ever be. As someone living in a city with an excellent public transportation network where masses of passengers, apart from some exceptions, are rather limited, I almost get dizzy when looking at the photos from Tokyo. Perched in, their faces pressed at the glass windows and pushed to their limits is how I’d describe the looks of these persons. Feeling something like that is what I can’t and don’t even want to imagine and certainly not experience on an everyday basis, every morning and every evening.
It was time for me again to leave home for exploring unknown, faraway places. As you already know me, my camera and me are used to simply hop on the next train, bus or plane in order to travel to other countries.
This time, through mere coincidence than big considerations, we travelled to China. (I would like to thank at this point all the travel websites that enabled me to find very easily the best offers in such a short time).
Today I’d like to show you some more pictures of my trip to Vietnam. After I’d visited the capital Hanoi and Sapa, I continued to Hội An. In German this place means “peaceful community” or “peaceful gathering place”. In 1999 the old town was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site.
last month I made one of my greatest wishes come true by traveling to a country of which I’d been dreaming for quite some time – VIETNAM!
And I can tell you right away – it is a breathtaking and multi-faceted country that has something for everyone’s taste! From fantastic beaches and high mountain ranges to turbulent cities to small sleepy villages and unique landscapes this country offers everything.
