From Nha San Collective:
Nha San Collective proudly presents an “Open studio” session by photographer Binh Dang.
This July, Binh Dang will present his photography project started from 2014 in the form of open studio and exhibition. Binh has worked with a DIY camera mechanism of taking portrait photos of people’s faces deep in the water. He asks people to participate in this project, take them through an “unique photography experience” and the result is a photo series displaying various facial expressions, created by the same process of working and presenting. This series does not simply give a visual impression of the interaction between flesh and water but also makes the audiences recall the dawn of human-beings, back to the time when we were staying in our mothers’ wombs.
The project “Expressions” in its initial period has been chosen as one of the Contemporary Artists finalists within the Contemporary Talents prize of Foundation Francois Schneider and was also featured in a photography magazine – DODHO Magazine.
Bing Dang is one of the young photographers living and working in Hanoi. After graduating from University of Applied Art, Binh has been exploring and practicing documentary photography as a personal method of researching social issues. He has participated in well-known photography workshops like Angkor Workshop, Foundry Workshop, Panoramic Worskhop in the College of Arts in Eunic’s Open Academy Europe. Binh’s artworks have been exhibited in Paris, Phnom Penh, New Delhi, Hanoi,… and have been featured in various international magazines (Le Journal de la Photographie, Le Monde, Exposure Magazine…). Recently, Binh Dang is interested in doing personal photography projects as a way of presenting the abstraction of the thinking process.
For those who want to experience the portraiture photography project, please send an email to [email protected] including your full name and preferred time slot. The process is open to public at Nha San Collective.

Nhà Sàn COLLECTIVE is not a museum, a gallery or an international culture institute where completed work are presented by established artists. Just like Nhà Sàn Studio before, it is a working studio to nurture where artists can create, collaborate, be given advice, critiques, and have chances to meet with international artists, curators. Works that are presented at open studio every month could either be finished or not, but the process of developing idea and working to improve the quality of the art work for local artists is what Nhà Sàn COLLECTIVE focuses on.
If you are interest and curious about experimental art, and want to have conversation with the working artists, please visit
