At his core, Michael Nguyen 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. “Michael Nguyen’s photography is the art of showing more than you can see. Making visible – worshipping the invisible, he walks with the third eye of a wanderer through the visual adventure of life.”
Michael Nguyen made a name for himself early on as a publisher of various magazines and periodicals. One of his main themes of work in the second half of the 1990s in the field of photography was “Greece”.
