If you’ve ever been to Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, chances are the traffic left an indelible mark on your memories of the place. For British photographer Rob Whitworth, a memory wasn’t quite enough and through the use of more than 10,000 RAW images he captured this chaotic beauty in his latest work, Traffic in Frenetic HCMC.
Says Whitworth: “Ever since I first set foot in HCMC I have been captivated by the city’s energy; the relentless construction and pace of change. Saigon is a city on the move unlike anything I have experienced before which I wanted to capture and share.”
We’ve covered the art of motorcycling in Saigon, but for those yet to experience it, this stunning video is a must-see primer. Whitworth says his next project will be Hoi An — we look forward to what we imagine will be a more a far more sedate viewing experience.
