heerink2

A beautiful series of photographs featuring the street vendors of Hanoi by photographer Loes Heerink. In order to get the desired shots (all captured from above) Heerink got up at 4am and positioned herself atop various bridges throughout the city, sometimes waiting for hours for vendors to pass by. By the looks of Heerink’s Kickstarter the project will soon be expanded into a book! See more portraits below.

Booooooom Reader Submissions: November

november-600

For those of you who are new around here, this is the way to submit your work to be considered for a post on Booooooom.

Thank you to everyone for up-voting work and leaving positive comments on these posts! It really does pump people up, and ultimately helps me see what work you like. These monthly posts get a lot of traffic so even if your work is ultimately not a fit for Booooooom it still gets seen, and can send lots of eyeballs to your own websites.

Please share your work here this month. The comments allow images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website.

 

Submission guidelines:

1. Please don’t flood the comments with a dozen images, just post 1 image that represents your best work along with 1 link.

2. If you see good work posted by someone upvote it so it appears at the top. This is not just a nice thing to do, it helps me see what work you actually like.

3. You can/should also encourage people who are sharing good work here! Comment on their posts and let them know you like what they’re doing. I really want to foster a community here, and this is a simple way you can connect with other people making work.

4. Keep in mind your post may not show up right away because it has an image attached. It may need to be manually approved first so don’t freak out and post a million times, once is enough.
