    Michael Nguyen

During this period of the Corona pandemic, most of us are stuck at home. Outside, distance to other people should be kept, social contacts should be minimized, walks only in pairs or with the family. Restaurants, cafes and bars are closed. The hosts have existential concerns.

Michael Nguyen has been living in Munich since 2007 and has dedicated himself entirely to art again since 2018. He is an artist, not a photographer but more a photographic poet or something he himself could not define. He moves away from the mainstream, at the same time blurs genres. Most of the time, he focuses on small, ordinary things but through the subjective lens, give them new perspectives, a new soul.
In addition to his artistic activities, Michael Nguyen is in Editor-in-chief of the online magazine for photography and art: Tagree. www.tagree.de
