Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) is an amazing up and coming city. This time lapse is a culmination of 10,000 RAW images and multiple shoots capturing some of the cities relentless energy and pace of change.
Everyone who has visited Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam knows part of the magic (love it or hate it) is in the traffic. Ever since I first set foot in HCMC I have been captivated by the cities energy. Saigon is a city on the move unlike anything I have experienced before which I wanted to capture and share.
Thanks to everyone who helped with the film and thanks also to the numerous kind people who allowed me access to some amazing locations.

The Trek District ARTCRANK™ Edition represents our first product collaboration with a cycling brand. The bike combines Trek’s top commuter bike with graphics created by ARTCRANK Lead Designer Rob Angermuller. The sleek, stripped-down single-speed bike is dominated by bold colors and shapes that echo traditional screen-printing techniques and textures, as well as pop art and Japanese animé. The District ARTCRANK Edition also features the Gates Carbon Drive— a maintenance-free belt drive system similar to those used on motorcycles — instead of a traditional chain and sprocket, which accentuates the bike’s singular appearance.
Design: Rob Angermuller | Lifter Baron
Promotion: Kate O’Reilly | CleverKate
