Anh Tu Nguyen is a vietnamese photographer specializing in Fine Art, Portrait and Wedding Photography. He was born in 1988 in Viet Nam and currently based in Aachen, Germany. His photographs were not made but created by mixing historical, cinematic and artistic love with a fantasy twist of Fine Art. He loves to create a world that doesn’t exist, a world that tells stories from his faded-away childhood memories and imagination.
Him in short: Day Dreamer. Night Wanderer. Photography Wayfarer. Cinema Admirer. Music Maniac. Sunset lover. Eccentric person. Down-to-earth Perfectionist.
When he was a little kid, he had always wanted to draw. Admired those who could draw and create so many wonderful art. Imagined himself being a painter. But he knew he was not talented at painting.
Besides, his parents have very high academic and career expectations for him. Back then he didn't know who does he wanna be so he just followed the goal they already set up for him.
And he was lost, until he found PHOTOGRAPHY. Yesterday his life was heading in one direction and today in another.
Photography has taken him on a journey of self discovery. It changed his life forever.
Now he is just not looking at but seeing the world. Not just a whole big picture, but also every details: up, down, left, right, different angles, different sides, different light...
Photography has taught him so many things and yet he can't still get enough of it.
It has helped him to appreciate this wonderful, precious world more than ever. Capture and freeze memories in a creative and beautiful way images that would move people, communicate a message and evoke emotions make him feel fulfilled.
Everyday is different. Every human being is different. Not only have to take their pictures but he should find a way to connect with them. His photography must not be an accurate representation of what he saw, but an accurate representation of what he felt about them. Capturing the essence of the person, the story of their life, their livelihood and a substantial emotion within the photograph.
He wants to find unique way of interpreting my thoughts and dreams into wonderful, sparkling with sensational concepts and true emotions. Creating some unique, emotional and artistic portraits driving towards our souls. He doesn't want to take photography for anyone but himself because my photographs are the expression of himself. They are who he is.
And his camera is not just a gear or a machine. It's the extension of himself. He is COMPLETED.
