As Good As Vietnam Gets
The Photogenic Ocher Walls of Hoi An Old Town
Dublin has its doors; Japan has its roofs; and Hoi An has its walls. Indeed, all across Vietnam, the erosion of paint and the march of mold and mildew create tapestries of extraordinary resonance, so much so that photographers can’t help but focus on the various patina that change as frequently as the weather. For the travelers, the walls of Hoi An are the canvases against which so much Vietnamese culture is showcased. For the local, they are more utilitarian. Check out what Hai Trinh captured on those photogenic walls when he visited Hoi An Old Town earlier this month.
