The West Lake Series

Published October 6th, 2013

West Lake (Tay Ho) area of Hanoi is an interesting mix of well to do Vietnamese and expats. French bistros and wine bars mix with local hole-in-a-wall Bun Cha and Pho eateries. One interesting aspect of this area is that its the only place in Hanoi where one can find a temporary refuge from the hustle and bustle of Hanoi's busy streets.



With these photos I wanted to focus on a city that is almost asleep, somewhat melancholic and impregnated with solitude. Emphasizing a personal relationship formed between the locals and the biggest lake in Hanoi, attempting to reveal more details for the discerning viewer, as well as provide an experience of Hanoi one would not normally get from many other photos of this interesting city.
