In this project I tried to paint a picture of the typical Vietnamese women in the most authentic and  traditional atmosphere. The pictures were taken of Vietnamese women from both the North and the South of Vietnam at temples in different cities. Through these images, apart from drawing portraits of the women from Vietnam in the traditional-inspired dresses, I also wanted to sketch a glimpse of the history and culture of my country and that hidden oriental soul that I earnestly yearn for – something fragile, emotional, romantic, loving, sensitive and profound.
