From Goethe Institut:
Since 2011, Matthias Meyer has been using a particular kind of photography to discover and present the secret parts and the coexistence of different cultures in the cityscapes of Hanoi and Paris: double exposure. The exhibition “Disorientation – A Small Paris in Hanoi” shows the results of this process – 20 pictures that display in clever superimpositions how strongly the two cities are related to each other. The combination of negative space, color and contrast in the photographs emphasize the architectonical heritage and the nostalgic relation between Paris and Hanoi.
Photographer Matthias Meyer has a very straightforward documentary style and is focused on street photography and photojournalism. Currently living in Hanoi, he is leading a course for photographers from all over the world. In addition to several group exhibitions in different countries, he had two solo exhibitions in Hong Kong (in 2010 and 2011).
