Fish Market in Tinh Gia, Thanh Hoa province, Vietnam

In this market, people have to wake up in early morning, about 4am to wait for fishing boats coming home.
The wage is pretty low, about $3/day or let say $80/month, very tough lives.
Give me your thought, all comments appreciated.
Gears: Leica M6 + 35/2 IV + Tri-X pushed 1600, dev in HC-110 [email protected]

Thanks,
Trung

Nice, but better check your light meter! Pics are too dark.

Yes, I was going to say that I agree some of the photos seem under-exposed.

Still, excellent work. I also really like #4.

Cool stuff. One of these days I have to make it to Vietnam. Had a friend who went there, told me it's a must-see.

Trung, you need a faster glass
No, just kidding.

A glimpse of hard-life always saddens and warm me at the same time. But it reminds me to be content with what I have. Such is a power of photography.

Thank you, Trung.

Thank you all for positive feedbacks. For all who haven't got chance to visit Vietnam, absolutely it's a must see destination. Do not hesitate to drop me a message when you visit there, I am based in Hanoi.

Fabulous - you have really captured the dark brooding spirit that is the essence of Vietnam. I just returned from Ha Noi two days ago.

Nice work, I especially like 4 and 5. They do seem dark, but it could also be the monitor you're working on. Vietnam is just a lovely country, I visited last fall and had a great time photographing. There are some countries that are just treats to visit and photograph, Vietnam is one, Turkey is another. Could go back again and again. You've got some nice work here and it reminds me of a book I just got as a gift, by Ara Guler, famous Turkish photojournalist, about an armenian fishing community in istanbul. I know, half a world and over half a century away, but people of the sea often have much in common. Nice documentary work!

Thanks all,

I posted some more images, though they are not in the same set above either I don't like them that much. Anyhow for you guys have some more aspects of the fish market.
All critics appreciated.

Cheers,
Trung

The second set is good, but I loved the first. Has a totally different feel.

Van Don fish market

Hi all,

Recently I had a chance to visit Van Don fish market, another one in Quang Ninh province (about 300 km to the North from Thanh Hoa province)
I think it would be better to post pictures to this topic also since they have the same themes.

Great pictures. THIS is what I think about when I think of documentary photography.

My favorite is #4 in the first batch, but I also like several in the last batch.

Good work.

Thank you for posting these images here. Some are dark, and I am glad that you used B&W. The second set of images is especially good.

Thanks raid, you are right about some dark images which I took in very early morning (I learnt something about how and where to meter the light after that)
These day, I shoot mainly with B/W film (if not say that 100%). I found that suit better with my Leica gears and my taste. It is also interesting that many folks here prefer the 2nd set which I do not like as much as the 1st one.
