Walk With Purpose

Saigon Photowalk (SPW, www.facebook.com/Saigonphotowalk) is a group of local and international photography enthusiasts who regularly explore and capture the essence of Ho Chi Minh City. Started in 2018, Juan Carlos Duran Solorzano created a movement of like-minded creatives, aiming to document Saigon’s dynamic street scenes, daily life and more. Built on the foundations of respect for other people and cultures, this group has grown as more artistic individuals seek to explore the city’s unseen places and interact with the welcoming locals. Every week the photo walks meander through the bustling districts of Saigon, delving into traditional marketplaces, tranquil temples, lively parks and charming alleyways and hems. Enjoy, embrace and engage with the city through their lens: 8 photographers, 8 sets of eyes and 8 different perspectives of the city they call home.
