Photographs of Vietnam Honored in International Travel Competition (September 07, 2004)




American Michael Matlach, an international travel photographer and tour guide, was among four major winners in the “Travel Photographer Of The Year Competition” based in the United Kingdom which was awarded for work submitted in 2003. While the 2004 Competition is underway, accolades continue to pour in regarding his stunning images that portray the vibrant energy so common in a typical Vietnamese marketplace.

His portfolio of images, made in the idyllic seaside town of Hoi An, was selected from among 10,000 entered in the competition.

Having traveled to Vietnam on numerous occasions, Michael was inspired by the quality and diversity of Vietnamese art and longed to capture on film the feeling of this most dynamic country. His win in the “Colour and Passion” category reflects his love of Vietnam.

As a collector of Vietnamese art with a special interest in lacquer painting, he feels it is important to let other cultures know about the wonderful world of Vietnamese art.

The images comprising his winning portfolio are part of an ongoing book project scheduled for publication in early 2006 which seeks to convey the beauty and energy of this most intriguing country.

Winning photos can be found at www.tpoty.com/tpoty-2003.htm and on his website at www.michaelmatlach.com
