Hanoi (Vietnam). Walking and photographing around Hanoi can be incredibly surprising: for example, I was not expecting to see the national railway surrounded by houses with people living and spending their days on the binaries… I found this scene incredibly attracting and exciting, I spent several minutes suspended between incredulity and the passion for that original situation. This is one of the most representative photograph I captured that afternoon.
Hanoi (Vietnam). During my trip around Vietnam, I noticed that the electricity grid is considered more than just an attraction: it’s a true superstar! Well, I must admit that I was intrigued by scenes like this one above (and they are very frequently, not only in large cities) – and not only because I work in the electricity sector!
So, I was not surprised when I saw this same image here above, printed on t-shirts sold everywhere in souvenirs shops. If you will travel all around Vietnam, you will certainly notice them. They are nice, and quite representative of today’s Vietnam. But I guess – and I’m pretty sure about it – that in few years these t-shirts as well as photographs like this one will be just a funny memory, considering that Vietnam is committed to modernize its infrastructures, including the Vietnam Electricity Grid.
