IPA Photo Essay Asia Award 2013 Finalist 9/19:

DO MANH CUONG, TWINS

“Twins” is Cuong’s personal documentary photo project, a very close description of the daily-life of  twins albinos brothers  – Huy and Hung.

Born in 2002 from a poor five childrens family in Ha Linh – Ha Tinh – Vietnam, they have to face to many dificulties; natural, familial and social: Almost every year, Ha Linh – Ha Tinh must suffer cruel flood, all their elder sisters and brothers get maried early, so they could not help them directly, and at last, no special medical/treatment for albinos.

Getting agreement from their family and school, Cuong spent time together with the twin, eat with them, slept together with them, amused and played with them like a close friend,  and with his Nikon camera, shared the same view as them – a different view to the world.
