An ongoing personal project by Australian photographer Drew Hopper.
Isolated fragments of Vietnam, a bold and intimate fasination of the Non la. Simply by removing the inherent context from the viewer, Drew purposely creates a seemingly surreal and abstracted reality from one of Vietnam’s iconic objects, the Non la ( traditional conical hat). With the use of harsh light, shadow, texture and shape, Drew conveys the impression of Vietnamese culture in it’s purest form. All images have been produced by using numerous photographic techniques achieved in-camera, with minimal enhancement in post.
