Ha Dao  

Ha Dao is a Vietnamese photographer whose works center around human relationships and survival, switching back and forth between being observational and self-referential. Her attempts to nudge the power structure between the onlooker and the represented have resulted in highly personal yet socially relevant work.

Ha has documented her own queerness in domestic settings, as well as service girls in Siem Reap, male wrestlers in Kolkata and ethnic minorities in Vietnam. In doing this, she examines the concepts that define the world and herself: gender, identity, changes in cultures and the environment. She constantly seeks new ways of looking at and photographing past stereotypes.   

Ha Dao’s partner manufacturer is proposed as a rice flour manufacturer - these images below are indicative of that environment
