“I lived in Viet­nam for seven years, and I wouldn’t even know how to be­gin count­ing how many as­sign­ments I’ve shot there. Hun­dreds,” says San­tos. “The north­ern moun­tains have al­ways done it for me. The val­leys of Ha Giang or Mu Cang Chai” of­fer the most magic. “North­ern­ers and south­ern­ers love to talk about how dif­fer­ent they are, but I’ve found peo­ple across the coun­try to be invit­ing, open and keen to learn about you.” A fa­vorite per­son­al­ity: the gen­eral who posed for a por­trait in Hanoi. “He ex­uded that clas­sic north­ern Viet­namese élan. Ef­fort­lessly cool, con­fi­dent and grace­ful.” In­sta­gram: @aaron­joel­san­tos.
