While in Hanoi, I had the chance to catch up with the amazing team at Matca and I stopped by to take a look at their zine making workshop. I am totally inspired by the work that these local photographers are producing. As someone whose day to day work is largely solitary, it was so refreshing to be surrounded by these creative people, to see their work, and to speak with them about their artistic practices.
I'm also in awe of a lot of the work that Matca is doing. One thing about this workshop that was really cool was that participants had the option to donate editions of their photozines to local galleries around Hanoi to share their work in a public forum. This is such a great opportunity for emerging artists, and it's really wonderful that Matca is raising the profile of Vietnamese artists in this way.
