His landscapes are often moody, contrasting the natural beauty of Vietnam with the continuing struggle in people's daily lives, while Long Thanh's portraiture captures the essence of the Vietnamese people, especially his high-contrast pictures of old people who have witnessed more than their fair share of tradegy over the generations.

I had an unforgettable experience in Long Thanh Art Gallery. First of all it was a super hot sunny afternoon, once I get in, the photographer himself invites me in with AC and he instantly puts on his Jazz music, very chill and relaxing while I was enjoying his art work. He’s photographing is very impressive. Meanwhile he’s a very cool person, told me a lot of stories behind those photos. I highly recommend everyone to visit him and his art work in Nha Trang!

Long Than‘s photography depicts Vietnamese Life in a deeply human and touching way. He does not hesitate to show life‘s struggles, joys and beauty in the expressive faces, underlining those realities with perfect backgrounds and light.
I could not help but come away a little more humble. It was def. A personal experience and I highly recommend a visit.

The studio is an amazing place for not only discovering Vietnamese culture but also listening to beautiful stories about the old time. Having a chance to sit with the owner and have an in-depth conversation about photography, I was stunned by his unique perspective but I believe very dear to many people's heart about his work. He is a heart-warming person and an inspiring photographer. Definitely worth a visit!

Long Thanh Black And White Gallery is located at 126 Hoang Van Thu , Nha Trang and open daily from 8am-5:30pm. Ring the bell and then when the wooden door open, you will fall into the beautiful emotional journey with the black and white photos. Long Thanh ‘s photos captured the treasure moments of human daily life, each photo contains it’s own story. Definitely worth a visit if you come Nha Trang.

If you have an interest in photography or the photographic arts, Long Thanh's gallery is a must-see in Vietnam. Long started shooting on film in 1964 when he was 13, and still shoots on film to this day. Today he's world-renowned for his ability to portray Vietnam's culture and people with a unique eye and a mastery of light and contrast.

Long develops his own film in his darkroom (located in the back of his gallery) and mixes his own chemicals. He eschews modern digital manipulation in favor of traditional darkroom techniques. The process—from taking the shot to developing the film—is handcrafted and personal. The limited image exposures of this process mean that each shot is more unique and organic than you find with modern digital photography.

Long's gallery is a comfortable two-room space on a quiet street in Nha Trang. It contains prints of his work and a portion of his analog camera collection, which he still uses daily. Visitors to the gallery will likely be greeted and catered to by the man himself. On my recent visit, he graciously spent hours with me, explaining his art, his process, and his method. He is friendly, talkative, and an incorrigible charmer.

Keep in mind that Long Thanh's gallery is not a major tourist attraction (most people visit Nha Trang for the beaches, not analog black-and-white photography), so the door might not be wide open. When I visited, there was a sign on the door that told visitors to ring the bell for entry. I did so, and Long soon greeted me. The gallery is clearly marked and easy to find.

Highly recommended if you are into visual arts or Vietnamese culture.
