Jon Sanwell is an English language teacher with a camera. Originally from Tunbridge Wells in the UK, he’s now in Ho Chi Minh City, in Vietnam – and happily for us, he’s taking photos.
According to his site:
I first came to Vietnam for a holiday in 2004 and fell in love with the place. In 2008, I quit my office job in London and moved to Hanoi to teach English – and to improve my photography. I’d bought my first DSLR camera the previous summer and I wanted to live somewhere that was awash with photo opportunities. So, for me, Vietnam and photography have always gone hand-in-hand.
He has just put up photos from the Mekong Delta in two parts, highlights below. They’re well worth checking out, giving human faces to an area many of us won’t travel to in our lifetimes. Wonderful, evocative photography.
