The Saigon-based pho­tog­ra­pher first vis­ited Thao Dien with his grand­mother in 1975. “She had a house in Thao Dien. I re­mem­ber go­ing with her to visit the ten­ants. There wasn’t much there back then, and now al­most ev­ery­thing has changed: from the street names, the dis­trict num­ber, to all the peo­ple.” When he’s in town, Om­mer bee­lines for his fa­vorite Hanoi-style bun cha restau­rant—“Thao Dien has one of the best spots in Saigon, Hai Hoi Quan”—and says the area has pic­turesque shoot­ing grounds: “I love tak­ing pho­tos of the wa­ter along the Saigon River.” In­sta­gram: @morganom­mer.
