Born in Vietnam and based in Spain, Viet Ha Tran is a fine art photographer known for her emotionally dense and compelling photographs of women. Since launching her photography career five years ago, her works have appeared in several group and solo exhibitions as well as Vogue Italia. Tran’s specialty is fantasy photography, as seen in her series “XIAN Myths of the Beauties” which features renowned Japanese actress Maya Murofushi in the role of four great beauties from Chinese history and mythology. Tran captures the inner dreams of the powerful women using her camera lens. Inspired by a mixture of philosophy, classical literature, European paintings and Persian mystic poetry, her works are meant to portray the inner workings of the female psyche and draw inspirations from the works of Old Masters like Caravaggio and Rembrandt, as evidenced in their highly painterly quality.
