Dinh Nguyen’s photos capture the places or moments that he encounters while doing his job as an architect. This can be a public setting, a personal space, the pace of daily life or random moments.

“In the midst of such bizarre atmosphere, indefinite, complicated and fuzzy feelings emerge. Photography, like a date with myself, has given form to those feelings and opened a new way of seeing and cementing personal experiences. A Little Bit of This and That is about such slices of life,” Dinh Nguyen shares his experiences.

The free-entry exhibition is sponsored by the Cultural Development and Exchange Fund and Canon Vietnam, and will run until May 12.

Born in 1979, Dinh Nguyen is an architect based in HCMC. He takes photos in order to see things outside of his daily job and boredom.

Matca (or Mat ca), which literally means fish eye in Vietnamese, was born out of the passion for and beliefs in photography as a form of narration and visual arts.

Since 2016, the website matca.vn has become the leading bilingual online journal dedicated to Vietnamese contemporary photography. Located in Ba Dinh District of Hanoi City, Matca space for photography has also been running exhibitions, educational programs, and multidisciplinary projects in cooperation with local and international experts in the industry.
