“Roaming, exploring, getting lost as if one was trying to grab the pulse of a country. Through the Delta series, Julien Dablanc takes a closer and singular look on current Vietnam, in the mouth of a world where inheritance and traditions meet modernity. Along with the current, the scenes of life and vivid atmospheres intertwine and offer us a sensitive and poetic perception of the Vietnamese people. With the help of an original and delicate documentary approach, the photographer evokes more than he shows, qualifies more that he depicts. Beyond the striking portraits, the elusive silhouettes and the fascinating atmospheres, the Delta series questions the intimate and complex links which a society maintains with its history, its roots and its aspirations.”
This series is the object of a visible exhibition from July 1st to September 15 in Le Mas de la Fenière in Raphèle-lès-Arles for Arles’s “Voies Off” 2018.
