The exhibition consists of photographs taken with smartphone by Hai Thanh in recent years. This is the result of his experiments in photography. For a working photographer like him, the smartphone could become a tool for taking images no less efficient than a professional camera.

On this special occasion, Hai Thanh shares: “Let’s just regard this exhibition as a personal diary of my own journey, of what has become part of my life. Thoughts and feelings towards these images are all yours. For my part, these are simply an honest autobiography and genuine emotions from the bottom of my heart, now laid open to share  with you guys.”
