Khuya is an old Vietnamese word meaning ‘very late at night'. It's a word with certain romantic allusions, especially when applied to the streets of Hanoi. This series of photographs was shot between 2015 and 2018, always after midnight and before dawn. It was in part inspired by the impressionistic street photography of Brassai and of his endless walks around his adopted home of Paris in the 1930s.
