“Hanoi is shedding its skin. So what to make of its spirit?”, asked Wouter Vanhees, a Belgian photographer based in Hanoi since 2015.

His debut photobook “Hà Nội, Wednesday, 10:43 p.m.” takes us on a journey through a Hanoi of a neon-lit haze, crisp shadows, and illuminated windows punctuating the night sky. With the locations obscured, perhaps what is captured is not a particular building but a promise, a collective yearning, or a default symbol of future prosperity.

The launching of Vanhee’s photobook published by Matca will take place together with an exhibition and artist talk.
