Public Private Hanoi
by Andre Lutzen
“A free, really high quality photo-essay magazine.  Fabulous!” Stephen Fry. British actor, writer and film maker
In the photo sequence Public Private Hanoi, André Lützen makes his way through the urban labyrinth of Hanoi by night. The city is restless, bustling, cramped. People are driven onto the streets by the heat and their confined living quarters. Doors are flung wide open. The private sphere overflows into the public realm. The boundary between in- and outside dissolves. With de- tailed precision, Lützen’s images depict this convergence of opposites and assume an almost cinematic character. The heady moments, the atmosphere, the intensity of the colors, the physical closeness, the constant movement are consolidated by Lützen’s camera into a complex fabric that makes life in this city almost palpable.
