The images above are from a light installation art show along the banks of the Red River that happened last weekend in Hanoi. I had gone to the area a week prior to photograph one of the participating artists, but had no idea what kind of spectacle was in store. It was one of those rare occasions where art and community truly mixed, as thousands of local residents made their way out to the streets to walk around and see the displays. Traffic was diverted and several of the art works encouraged community interaction. And while they may not have been the most innovative or groundbreaking works I’ve ever seen, they were far and away some of the most fun and perhaps important pieces show-wise in recent memory. So that’s something. Getting people out of their houses and into the streets is never a bad thing.
