Photography Life Magazine recently posted 20 fascinating images of Vietnam taken by four photographers on its website in a piece entitled Visions of Vietnam – 4 Photographers, 4 Styles.
Circle of Dreams – A young woman naps in a round boat woven from bamboo on Vietnam’s central coast, near Phu Yen. The locals say the round shape allows for easy manoeuvrability when fishing in shallow coastal waters.
A Room with a View – The endless rice terraces of Hoang Su Phi are hailed by many as the most beautiful in Vietnam. The best times to photograph them are June (planting season) and September (harvest season).
French born Rehahn: Ao Dai Walking – A young woman walks the waterfront at the UNESCO World Heritage site of old Hoi An.
Cornrows – Low angle of a corn farmer with his crop drying above. Corn is distant secondary staple to rice, and is often planted in rocky ground where rice cannot grow.

Hey Bartender! – A man painting a hotel in Tay Ninh is handed a lunch time cup of beer.
David Lazar: Sunrise River – Hoi An.
Girl in Chinese Temple – Classic image of a girl wearing a white Ao Dai and averting her gaze under a non la. The image was captured in Saigon’s Chinatown.
