Sầm Sơn Still Life

Shot in the fish market at Sầm Sơn in north central Vietnam (see Sam Son). The market is right on the beach, and fishermen pull up their boats side by side and sell whatever they caught. Agressively. Although the image doesn't really capture it, the ambience here is one of pure commercial frenzy. [NOTE: Freezing in NY this morning and I am ready to go back to Thanh Hoa province. Time for another project]. 


Sầm Sơn Fish Market

The resort town of Sầm Sơn in Thanh Hoa province has a fish market right on the beach.  The fisherman pull their boats out of the water, flip them over to provide some shade, and start trying to sell what they caught that morning. "Cacophony" is probably an appropriate word to describe the experience. [NOTE: That's our driver, Mr. Cuong, buying the dried fish at the end of the clip].
