Young people working on Hanoi special photo project
A group of young people in Hanoi has been working on a photo project named “Humans of Hanoi” depicting the daily life of Hanoians.
The project is based on the idea of the Humans of New York photoblog and bestselling book, which features street portraits and interviews collected in the city. Started in November 2010 by photographer Brandon Stanton, over 6,000 portraits have been taken so far.
The project's aim is to capture the simple moments of life and people in Hanoi through photos, giving a hint of the interesting stories that make up each individual.
The group running the project includes six people from all over Hanoi. They meet strangers and listen to their stories by asking them a few simple questions as well as take their photos. The photos are posted on the project’s Facebook page and has attracted great public attention over the past three months.
Each story has been translated into English to help foreigners to understand more about the culture and people of Hanoi.
