Saigon zoo, September 2019
With a coastline of over 3,000km, beaches in Vietnam shouldn’t be just about seafood, cocktail parties and sunbathing. In the eyes of the Vietnamese the sea is holy, offering food to sustain life but threatening to take it away with a single wave at any moment. Thanh Nguyen, a VnExpress photographer, spent five years on and offshore in central and southern coastal towns to document all aspects of beach life, and his close-ups depict the complicated relationship locals have with the sea.
