Walking the Cow, by Thomas Jeppesen

The picture was take on my way to a pagoda with a friend, an hours drive outside Hanoi. It was an incredible wet and dreary day, and where there normally would be people and animals everywhere, were completely deserted roads. This guy was walking his cow, and seemed as surprised to see us, as we were to see him. Of course, it’s not every day foreigners are seen on these small countryside roads.

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.
