Photocentric Vietnam

“My photographic process goes like this: choose a neighbourhood on the map and explore.” So says Geoffrey Hiller, who has chosen several ‘neighbourhoods’ far off the tourist track in northern Vietnam, in both city and countryside settings, for this tour. Whether you’re a master photographer, an enthusiastic amateur, or a fan of unusual settings, this tour opens more than your camera’s shutter!

In Hanoi we’ll inevitably think we’ve gotten lost – even the locals do – but what a beautiful city to get lost in! Beyond new urban projects and glittering business districts, the city’s everyday life still takes place in alleyway neighbourhoods, markets, and along railway tracks located metres away from the entrance doors of houses.

Our route continues to small villages of northern Red River Delta and to the dreamy landscapes of Ninh Binh to immerse ourselves in spectacular scenery and rural villages. We’ll travel to the border with China, to Ha Giang, the most isolated province of Vietnam, through misty and lofty landscapes. A third of Vietnam's 54 minority tribes live in the region, known for its forested mountains of dramatic limestone and granite. Among many highlights will be opportunities to see and photograph both people and scenery.

We’ll be joined by Vietnamese photographers– colleagues of Geoffrey’s – who will share their favourite locations.
