About the series: 21 Grams:
Truc-Anh has been photographing Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, every day for the last three years. He doesn’t try to describe what the city is or how people expect to see it; instead he uses its never-ending messy flow of activities to create a mysterious tableau. Weird, violent and droll just as the ‘new’ Vietnam is.
