The story 

My name is Michael Groissl. For the last two years, I’ve been photographing the northern part of Vietnam, exploring the daily life in Vietnam and capturing life through landscapes, cities, and people. This project is called “The daily life in Vietnam- The north” I fell in love with Vietnam the moment I crossed the Lao-Vietnam border, so I decided to make a photo book and combine my passion for photography and love for Vietnam. The daily life in Vietnam-The north is about everyday life in Vietnam - from the mountains in Ha Giang to the cities like Hanoi and the people I’ve come across.

 The book

The book is divided into three beautiful sections about the daily life in Vietnam - landscape, city, and people. The book includes high-quality photos in color and black & white. The book is in both English and Vietnamese. This book is 30x30 with a soft cover (250 GSM), and 200 page (100gsm).

Tôi tên là Michael Groissl. Suốt hai năm qua, tôi đã có hành trình lưu giữ lại những bức ảnh về miền Bắc Việt Nam, khám phá cuộc sống thường ngày của người dân nơi đây và ghi lại những khoảnh khắc cuộc sống thông qua hình ảnh phong cảnh thiên nhiên, các thành phố và con người. Dự án mang tên “Cuộc sống thường ngày ở Việt Nam – Miền Bắc”. Tôi đã dành tình yêu cho đất nước Việt Nam ngay từ khoảnh khắc tôi đi qua Biên giới Việt – Lào. Kể từ đó, tôi đã ấp ủ ước mơ và quyết định tạo nên một cuốn sách ảnh về đất nước tôi yêu thương này. “Cuộc sống thường ngày ở Việt Nam – Miền Bắc” kể về đời sống hằng ngày của người dân Việt Nam từ những vùng núi xa xôi ở Sapa đến những thành phố lớn như Hà Nội hay từ trong chính những con người mà tôi gặp trên hành trình của mình. Cuốn sách được chia thành ba phần: cảnh quan, thành phố, và con người. Cuốn sách bao gồm những tấm ảnh màu và đen trắng chất lượng cao. In sách ảnh cũng tốn nhiều chi phí và điều đó có nghĩa bạn có thể góp một phần giúp đỡ dự án này. Những cuốn sách (số lượng) đầu tiên được ký kết với số lượng bản giới hạn. Rất mong nhận được sự ủng hộ và sẻ chia của các bạn cho dự án này để cuốn sách nhận được thêm nguồn tài trợ. Cám ơn.

Risks and challenges

I do not see any potential risks or challenges. I have the book ready to be printed with a trusted printing company as soon as the project is funded.
