Awesome Photography by French Artist Rehahn

Rehahn is a French photographer that first started out in 2007. He moved to Hoi An, a city in Vietnam in 2011 and opened a restaurant there. His passion for photography took flight and encouraged by his friends and fans, his art and popularity started a crescendo line. It all culminated with the publishing of  his book in 2014 Vietnam: A mosaic a contrasts. 

Vietnam has over 50 ethnic groups. They are diverse, colourful and the source of inspiration for Rehahn, along with the ethnicity photographer Manny Librodo. Rehan  has photographed about a dozen ethnic groups and still has his work cut out for him. 

On 1 January 2017, he opened the Precious Heritage Art Gallery Museum that showcases these ethnic groups whose traditions and heritage are dwindling.
