Hue // March 2009



.Statement: Colour / Ho Ngoc Son
I do not merely photograph!
I wrap worried Spring feelings, lively spring atmosphere, mild and transparent spring sunshine… I wrap all hardships and strenuousness for the blossom of spring …
I wrap all those things into a frame full of colors and only colors.
I do not merely photograph!

.Statement: Looking / Le Huy
I look at the trees, the sky, the tanks… and I see!
Trees, sky, tanks, blades of grass… are looking at me, what would they see?
We settle down in silence, thinking, and… chatting…
The camera lens helps me to record a part of this non - verbal conversation.

.Statement: Shade / Phan Hai Bang
… shadows are born from the union of conformation and light…
… shadows carry melancholy of shape and mysteries of black night…
… shadows try to escape from equivocal obsession to paint their stature…
… like a way to overcome the desperate…
… overcome the melancholy…
… I am trying to see that…

.Statement: Holes / Truong Thien
In this beautiful and ancient imperial city of Hue, there are a lot of bullet holes formed in different time by different guns-bullets, by machine guns, submachine guns, mortars, cannons, bombs…
They could be shot from the North bank of Huong River, or from South bank of Huong River…
They could be shot from ground or aircrafts in the sky…
They could be shot in 1968, or 1975, or around fierce time of the war…
I record a small part of lots of bullet holes pinned on the Citadel’s walls.
With a question that always obsesses me, not only me:
- We should or should not fill vestiges as dry wounds, now become a part of Hue’s flesh and blood!

.Statement: Standing / Tran Thanh Son
Go up – step down – stand still…
I did that, at some times in a day, in my life…
And, in a moment, I pause, stand only and …see…
Sometimes, many times… you also go up – step down – stand still… on stairs, on your shadow…
Do you see that ?
