Since 2001, the French photographer Réhahn has been traveling through Southeast Asia on his motorcycle, capturing novelties and beautiful landscapes, whilst visiting more than 35 countries. Across his journey through Asia, he came across Vietnam.

Starting with this first visit, it became a decade-long journey of exploration and discovery of the country's ethnic communities and preserved culture.

“A good connection (and photograph) must start with respect. I always put my camera away and give my full attention to the person I’m meeting so that trust can build organically.” This is a motto that Réhahn stands by.

This is Le Van Se and his wife, Nguyen Thi Loi in Hoi An. My adopted Vietnamese daughter and I were invited for tea at their house as we were biking through their farm.

I'm guessing this might have been slightly filtered, but this image knocks me flat. There is so much soul in this little kid's face - probably more than any adult I know. I can't stop coming back to this.

This is not in Vietnam, it's in Ladakh - India. But a beautiful picture.

At first I thought that this was "blah", but then I stared at it for a moment. The gradation of color is insanely beautiful. Then you see the man in his boat and if you put your face closer and bring him into focus, you might think it's actually a water color. I like this photographer, whomever it is.
