Photographed this old lady in a pagoda in Nha Trang, Vietnam. Most people present at this pagoda were busy trying to get money from foreigners. It was quite disturbing and hardly what one would expect from a buddhist pagoda. This woman was one of the few who just sat quietly without asking me for anything, even though I took her picture … It’s easy to imagine the long life this woman has had.

Thomas Jeppesen is a danish fellow, living in vietnam on the 6th year. He has a master in architecture, but has worked with realestate advertising and marketing since he finished school in 1998. He now own and run a full-service marketing agency in Hanoi, servicing both the local and foreign clientel. He often escapes the dirty city on motorcycle with the camera on his back, exploring the rural areas around Hanoi. The countryside in Vietnam is like a step (or many) back in time, and offer a genuine glimpse into the real world of the majority of vietnamese people, the farmers. Through his pictures, he tries to portrait Vietnam and it’s people in the simples form possible, black and white, one subject or face at the time … Simplicity and minimalism are his life convictions, photography included. This is the reason why most of his images are black and white.
