    Michael Nguyen

There are Yin and Yang. Good and evil. Negative and Positive. But where is antimatter? Is it isolated from the whole universe? Is it lonely somewhere? Like us in these difficult times, separated from each other and going each own way. For better or worse.

Michael Nguyen is a photo artist and documentary photographer living near Munich, Germany. He takes photographs since 1988. He has been living in Munich since 2007 and moved to Gauting near Munich in 2015. After a long break in the cultural sector and after a sickness he has dedicated himself 2018 entirely to art again. He is an artist and a photographic poet who 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.
