Two years ago, Vietnam, Contrast of Mosaics-marked the beginning of legendary photographer Réhahn's photographic journey of a true Vietnam, documenting the allure of its iconic scenery, diverse inhabitants and hidden, far-flung corners. The book went on to earn international praise for photos that vividly captured Vietnam's spirit, its unique everyday interactions and intricate tribal culture, provoking curiosity and providing us access to Vietnam's complex cultural landscapes. In Volume II, Réhahn takes us with him across Vietnam, to remote villages and secluded mountains on a year-long journey documenting Vietnam's vanishing cultures, ancient traditions and the everyday lifestyles that endure, despite the onset of a more contemporary way of life. Our focus, enigmatically drawn to the characterful faces of both the young and the old, the beauty that surrounds them and their everyday lives. With new commentary from the artist himself, we are introduced to the striking stories behind the photographs and the sustained engagement between photographer and subject that leads to portraits loaded with character, honesty, conviction, and that intangible beauty that forces you to do what a great picture should: pause and stare.
