The Photographer of the day is Pham Van Ty, a graphic designer working in Ho Chi Minh city (Vietnam). He’s been an amateur photographer for the past 3 years, and photography is a hobby of his and he spends his free time shooting pictures of his homeland. He loves to shoot portraits of laborers, the Vietnamese lifestyle and landscapes especially of the coastline of Vietnam. The country boasts more than 3400km of land, with infinite stretches of powdery sand, coves, lagoons, impossible boulder formations and tropical islands ringed with yet more beaches.
His photos have been published in National Geographic Magazine and View Photography in Germany. He has just received the 1st place National Award from the Sony World Photography photo contest this month. The pictures that he takes depict Vietnamese people living their daily lives.
In these pictures you see an old minority woman smoking, little children playing, and people contemplating the beauty of life. On a sunny day they take the brine to the fields and wait for the sun to do the work. Most of the field work is done by hand, though you would think everything would be done by machines in this day and age. Salt may be inexpensive but it doesn’t come cheap.
