TCS 010 – Rehahn Croquevielle's Precious Portraits
One of the coolest people that my wife and I met in SE Asia while on our sabbatical was Rehahn Croquevielle, a super friendly photographer who we bumped into while in his shop and after only a few minutes of chatting invited us to join him at his favourite coffee shop in Hoi An the next morning. French born Rehahn is a world renowned photographer and one of the most featured in recent years with his incredible portraits of local Vietnamese people, where he now lives. He's been rated number 4 of the top 10 best travel photographers by BoredPanda and his photos have been featured on the covers of the likes of Conde Nast Traveler, The Times and National Geographic. He's published multiple versions of his book "Vietnam, Mosaic of Contrasts" and has recently opened a museum in Hoi An documenting Vietnam's Precious Heritage and showcasing photographs from his explorations around Vietnam while searching for ethnic minorities. For Rehahn, “photographers are nothing without the people in their photos” and he hopes to create a movement among other photographers by encouraging them to give back to the people and communities where they photograph.
