Makét 01: A Vietnamese Photography Village


Presenting Matca’s first publication about Lai Xa – a craft village that holds a special position in the national history of photography.


Matca gladly presents Makét, the first publishing project by Matca after over three years working mainly on online platforms. In the inaugural volume titled “A Vietnamese Photography Village”, author Ha Trang traces the emergence of studio photography in Vietnam from a small village called Lai Xa on the outskirts of Hanoi. Memories of studio photography’s golden days unfold through interviews of remaining Lai Xa practitioners and their descendants, along with never-before-seen photos from personal archives.
