In A City – Hanoi & Ho Chi Minh
Since 2005 DJ has run regular workshops and projects for the British Council around the world. This project took inspiration from James Joyce’s “Dubliners”, between November 2008 and March 2009, under the curatorship of D J Clark six teams of writers and photographers each took a physical space or community within Hanoi and set out -using words, photographs, video and sound- to tell the everyday stories of the people they encountered.
Between August and October 2010, DJ returned to Vietnam this time working with three teams of writers and photographers in Ho Chi Minh City. The projects were funded by the British Council and led to a physical book, exhibitions in both Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh and the iBooks.
