What started as a interest turned into a project where I spend hours on bridges waiting for vendors to pass, Vendors of Vietnam. I just wanted to take a picture of a flower vendor from above. While waiting for a flower vendor, I passed the time taking pictures of other vendors. Such as fruit and vegetable vendors. Soon I realized, vendors create little pieces of art everyday. Their bicycles are so colorful and often perfectly arranged. Due to the amount of time I spent on the bridge, I got a little peek in the world of these women. I hope these image tell a little bit of their story.
Book: Merchants in Motion
Currently I am publishing a book of this series titled: Merchants in Motion, the art of Vietnam’s Street Vendors. The book is already available at bol.com and will be available on other websites soon!
Limited Edition Prints: Vendors of Vietnam
Besides the book there are some limited editions available; signed, numbered and engrafed certificate of authencity. I work with a specialized printing agency who deals a lot with special editions prints. The images are printed on Giclee Print, German Etching 308gsm or metal. Because they are limited they are not printed more than one hundred times (excluded some Kickstarter backers).
