Long Thanh's photographic repertoire is unique as its wide-ranging. His landscapes are often moody, contrasting the natural beauty of Vietnam with the continuing struggle in people's daily lives, while Long Thanh's portraiture captures the essence of the Vietnamese people, especially his high-contrast pictures of old people who have witnessed more than their fair share of tradegy over the generations.

I spent 2 hours in Long's beautiful gallery this morning. The gallery looked closed when I arrived just after midday but I simply rang the door bell and his wife invited me in. She immediately offered me an ice cold glass of water, which was a welcoming relief from the hot temperatures outside. The gallery space is air conditioned ,bright... More

We visited Long Thanh while he was at his studio. It was a fantastic experience. He gave us many stories about his photography. We purchased some prints for a relatively modest sum. It is worth bringing a few home. Hint: Many of the photos are rather sad, but artistic. Refrain from buying. My friend bought one and he no longer... More

Long Than is an amazing photographer, the gallery a must for photography enthusiasts. His (analog) B/W pictures are carefully crafted and edited and show the life and the people in Vietnam. You can also buy them there, prices range from $150 to $380.

What a gem of a place to take a break from the heat. Long's photography is beautiful and perfectly captures life in Vietnam through traditionally shot and developed black and white film. You can buy signed photographs in a range of sizes in the gallery (which can be rolled up for traveling) or have them FedEx'd to your country if... More

Long is such an amazing photographer, when we visited his gallery we decided to buy one of his pictures. He took the time for us, and after we finished two bottles of wine with him, we left with the best souvenir from Vietnam. I would recommend it to everybody!

Worth a visit, especially if you're interested in photography & art. The images of daily Vietnamese life & of Vietnamese landscapes are beautiful. The prices aren't cheap, but that didn't put us off as you get what you pay for. After all, Long Thanh continues to practice the manual craft of developing his photographs by hand in a dark room.
