About Viet Ha Tran


IconInspires

What inspires you?

I am deeply inspired by Asian philosophy, English and French classic literature, European classic paintings, and mystic Persian poetry. I am also inspired by the fragile soul of women and landscapes. Photography has the power of immortalizing the moment and freezing the emotions and this intrigues me very much.


IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

I enjoy very much the post-production process after photographs are already taken through a highly meticulous process of organizing a photoshoot which normally involves many people. During the post-production, I let my imagination fly without any limits into the kingdoms of philosophy, poetry, literature, arts and imagination. I feel as if I was painting my inner world, dreams and emotions, onto a digital canvas.


IconMagnifying

What are 3 words that best describe your work?

Romantic, feminine and deep in thought
