I love the sea. I often walk along the beach to people-watch and ask myself what has drawn them to this place. Perhaps everyone has their own relationship with the sea: there are those who live in harmony with it, who struggle against it, and who seek to conquer it. I have been traveling across the coast of Vietnam to contemplate, experience, and document moments people spend with the sea. Though fascinated with the diverse interactions taking place there, I am also anxious about the ocean’s health and its future.
