A spiritual experience with Ricoh GR II

This post is also available in: Tiếng Việt

Hi folks,

In August 2018, I was given a Ricoh GR II for experiment. Sponsored by Tixiai.

As many of us photographers have known, GR series is among the top cameras for daily life and street photography. There is no need for more explanation.

Come with so much advantages (compact, lightweight, strong RAW files) are disadvantages, the biggest problem with the GR for me is it allows me to shoot anywhere, anytime. Within a few days, I have shot thousands of photos, then it took me a year to edit them all down.

Finally, today I’m able to share with you guys the images of a Lên đồng ceremony. As a person who is interested in Vietnam’s cultural identities. Shooting a Lên đồng ceremony is a good experience for me. You can learn more about this special ceremony in this Wiki page: CLICK HERE

Above of all, the images are narrative, enjoy my visual diary post:
