I recently saw a set of photos of the ceremony of Nguyen Phuong sharing on my personal Facebook page and was impressed by the feeling of half-dreaming and half-dreaming throughout the photo. Therefore, I have contacted and asked Mr. Phuong to share with you, through which people can better understand a ritual in Vietnamese folk belief activities.
- Can you introduce a little about yourself?
Up to now, my period of practicing photography is over three years. At first, my image is a bit tourist oriented. Later, I took more personal photos, discovered myself and connected with contemporary society.
- Can you introduce some information about rituals? During the implementation of the photo series, did Phuong have to learn much about this religious activity?
At the time of making this set, I was a little confused at first, but I couldn't understand it much later, but it was more understandable, but to really understand, I needed more time. My fellow comrades took photos after many people became friends, and they shared their journey to the council, each with a different personal story but the majority of people I knew were "run" with a number base. It is imperative that a new baptismal "peace" is required.
The ceremony to go to the field outside the bronze bar (the holy servant) also had four pillars in the surrounding area to put on towels and incense, to help the bronze bar. Equally important is the singing of the lower song, each price (there are 36 prices).
- The difficulties that Phuong encountered when taking this picture of the maid?
Until now I have always been attractive every time I went to shoot on the field. The most difficult thing when pursuing this set of photos is how to capture the demeanor, the atmosphere of every price, to get the feeling of the upper realm and reality, not the pure beauty through the portraits.
- Has Phuong finished this set? Looking forward to this set of photos of Phuong?
Currently I still continue with the photo set. This is a long-term project that may not be completed because I don't have a "base".
Thank you Mr. Nguyen Phuong for sharing the photos and stories with the Exquisite Camera. Hope to see more of your photo projects in the future. Invite brothers and sisters to see the "Ritual ceremonies" of Phuong.
Rituals to the field contain unique cultural and artistic values bearing the identity of the Vietnamese people without being affected or hybridized by other cultures, which is the reason I understand about copper.
In addition to the field, the mysterious journey between the two fairy worlds and the realm is connected through copper bars after covering the coverlet.
The burlap on the head is repeated as the saints cast copper or rise.
At the beginning of the prices, there is a holy form.
The bronze barricades are those who have a base (according to the concept) of entering copper into 36 valet prices. Each price represents the specific character of the characters.
The gods, adoration prices, her price often clears, lures, dances and coasts.

The prices of Quan and Hoang often include incense, defection, sword dance, sword dance, and bronze dances drinking and drinking tea and tea.
Quan tu triads incense and clearing.
The price of martial arts with the merits of fighting the enemy is often dancing to the executioner – the price of the Fifth Army
Price of Mr. Hoang Bay – he returned to incense, defoliation and dueling. If he threw a tree into someone's case, it was as if he had spotted that person.
The price of the common chess dance – the price of Mr. Hoang Muoi.
