Public Private Hanoi

photographer André Luetzen – 


Hanoi by night: restless, bustling, claustrophobic. Breathless

heat and cramped living quarters drive people onto the city

streets. With doors and windows flung wide open, domestic

worlds spill out into the public arena. Flashes of intimacy

penetrate heady moods, resonant colour is fused with physical

proximity, and the constant rhythms of pavement narratives are

transformed into a complex fabric that lends almost palpable

presence to life in Vietnam’s capital.
