Rehahn Croquevielle is a French portrait and travel photographer who moved to Vietnam where he fell in love with its culture and people. He is known for capturing the beautiful smiles of Vietnamese and the rich heritage of their country. As to why he became a photographer, he says, “All is about catching emotions. This is why I chose to be a photographer!”
He became popular when he published his book titled “Vietnam, Mosaic of Contrasts”, which features his best images of eight years in his new homeland.
Rehahn C: I started to travel in 2006 and wanted to capture images for the memory. It was my first motivation. Slowly it became a passion and a job after having published my first book, Vietnam, Mosaic of Contrasts.
What do you like most about portraiture and landscape photography?
Rehahn C: So far I’m a portrait photographer. A landscape depends on the time you go to shoot and the weather. But a portrait depends on the personality of the photographer. If you are a people person, you will naturally spend more time with your subject and connect with him. Then the photo will be much more meaningful.
Rehahn C: An international exhibition with costumes of Vietnamese ethnic people and photos together. It will become true in Sep 2016 with the first exhibition where 20 costumes and 40 photos will be showed to the public.
