Saigon Film Photo Walk: THE ALLEY

By Bui Hoang Tu
About
Are you tired of all the cliché touristic spotlight  ? Full of tourists, nothing else but the selfie stick and "soulless" luxury shop. Do you want to experience the local life of Saigon in a very specific way: through the viewfinder of the analog camera ? In this experience, you come to my store to pick up a TLR camera and one roll B&W medium format film. After the short brief about how to use it and small talk about Saigon. We will discover:  - THE COFFEE AND STREET FOOD CULTURE OF VIETNAM: Start with a 90-year old coffee shop, where you will sit down and enjoy the coffee like a local.  - THE " ORIGINAL" ANALOG PHOTOGRAPHY: You will know how to use ALL the cameras in this world and practice  by wind your way through nearby ALLEY street markets and the oldest apartment HIDDEN in town.  - SAIGON LOCAL TOUCH: I will help you to " BREAK THE ICE" by being your translator and connecting through all local people.  Let's begin, shall we ;)

    I recently had the pleasure of embarking on a photowalk through the vibrant streets of Saigon, with Tu as my guide. Tu is a talented and knowledgeable guide who took me around local Saigon. I had the chance to meet and speak with local people while practicing my photography skills. This was my favourite part of my trip and I highly recommend this to anyone who is interested in photography and experiencing a culture from the perspective of local people.

    Amazing! Was so fantastic to walk the streets of Saigon and learn how to use a medium format camera. Will definitely be an experience to boast about to my friends. Bui was a great teacher, making me feel confident with a camera I had never used before and has an amazing collection of cameras in his store. Would highly recommend this as a unique way to see Ho Chi Minh city.
