HCM CITY (VNS) — Some of the latest works by Ha Noi-based photographer Jamie Maxtone-Graham will be on show at HCM City's Galerie Quynh from today.
His first ever exhibition in the city - titled That Little Distance - will feature photos from Still. Life and That Little Distance which were shot "in the derelict setting of a former factory where the only light source was daylight passing through a large, north-facing window", a release from the gallery says.
Still. Life depicts seemingly disparate objects bound together into a structure marked by tension, while That Little Distance features enigmatic portraits of individuals including a poet, gangster, artist collective, and gay couple.
The exhibition will remain open until October 31.
American Maxtone-Graham has been working for more than 20 years in narrative cinematography. He first came to Viet Nam in 1990 for documentary From Hollywood to Ha Noi and returned a number of times before putting down roots in the city. His photographs have been featured in exhibitions in Europe and Asia. — VNS
