And yet, as much as we photograph, there are moments when we put our cameras aside to let the city sink in. Because despite all its tangible difference and fascination, it’s the spirit of Hà Nội, its lively energy and its incomparable character, that is the hardest to capture. This is the challenge and the pleasure of our photography workshop in Hà Nội - the pursuit of encapsulating the elusive soul of a city in pictures. In these moments, it feels as though we’re breathing not just as photographers but as part of the city itself.
