Ho Chi Minh City was formerly known as Saigon and is located in the southern part of Vietnam. Being the largest city in Vietnam, it has a total population of over seven million. It is my third trip there on business and I can still recall the first time I stepped out of the airport … I was amazed by the number of motorcycles roaming their busy streets. Traffic seems chaotic but the riders and drivers were very careful and pretty courteous. Taking a walk around the city, you can find both modern and retro lifestyles and buildings melted into one. One moment you will find street hawkers with their customers happily enjoying their meals sitting by the roadside on little wooden stools and the next you’ll find some elegant looking cafe and restaurants.
People are generally very friendly and nice but if you speak English only, you will probably have to check out the more modern shops and restaurants because you might end up looking like an alien when ordering food or bargaining with the locals who speak only Vietnamese. Tons of shops offer very beautiful artwork and handicrafts. Don’t forget to check out their local food especially the beef noodles (I think they call it ‘pho’).
Reminiscent of traveling photographers of the 19th century, Giles Clement tours through the country with his assistant, Zeiss (an Irish Terrier), offering everything from portrait sessions to wildly creative photographic projects for magazines and companies. And although his mode of transportation may have evolved with the times, his photographic method and gear have changed very little compared to the photographers of days past. Now, with over 3 years of tintyping experience under his belt and an impressive list of clients, he's carved a name out for himself as an accomplished tintyper and continues to spread his passion for this ages-old technique everywhere he goes.

Autochrome was one of the first strides toward color photography. The combination of potato starch grains and silver bromide produces a cloudy cast that makes buildings like Villa Bonnier look even more intriguing.
Anna Hollond got her fist camera on her 10th birthday, and she hasn't stopped carrying a camera ever since. About a year ago, she sought to document her memories for her journal but didn't want to do so digitally, and got her first Lomography camera. Next thing she knew, she had a trove of instant cameras, as well as a knack for instant photography.
