Self-portrait artist, photographer & model

France-based Vietnamese self-portrait artist, photographer and model.

I always knew photography as I grew up surrounded by cameras of my father photographer. I have no specific messages through my art. I don’t want to stand behind any societal ideology as most of time they lead to nonsense and violence.

My creative process comes straight from my gut, a deep need of creation, of self expression, to be fully in my body, in my being, to be whole. I create only for the aestheticism, for the beauty, for the creative act itself. For me, it should be the only reason to create. We live in a world which goes too fast, we are shattered with all social stuffs and others’ expectations.

Through my creations, I just want to be fully aware of what’s happening around me, to be present with all my senses and fully absorbed by what I am doing; live genuinely all these experiences, with all my senses, my heart and my brain, and then breath them into my photographs and expressions…
