Photographer John Vink was born in 1948 in Belgium. He studied photography at La Cambre art school in 1968 and became a freelance journalist 3 years later. He has won several awards in the journalism career and released the book “Refugies” in 1994.

John Vink became a full member of the Magnum photo magazine in 1997. In 1993, he began writing a series of memoirs of the communities with unique cultural identities living in the mountainous region of Guatemala, Laos and the Caucasus. This collection is called ” Peuples d’ en Haut,” released in 2004.

Wishing to concentrate on one country instead of continuously moving, John Vink decided to live and work in Cambodia since 2000. Here, went deep inside many social, land issues and the Khmer Rouge trial.

In 1990, John Vink came to Vietnam and captured the idyllic image of the country and people in the places he passed. The special thing in this photo shoot is that the Belgian photographer focused on the job of ordinary people living in many different areas.
