  • Nhà Thờ Lớn - Big Church

    “Nhà Thờ Lớn - Big Church” paints a captivating scene of Hanoi's St. Joseph's Cathedral, infused with both the timeless serenity of faith and the bustling energy of everyday life. Even in monochrome, the grandeur of the Cathedral dominates the background. The starkness of the black and white accentuates the architectural details, transforming the stone edifice into a monument of devotion. In the foreground, the couple riding the motorbike acts as a powerful counterpoint to the Cathedral's immensity. They are in motion, signifying the journey of faith, the constant movement towards communion with the divine. Their presence draws the viewer into the scene, making them a participant in the pilgrimage towards the sacred space. The towering trees flanking the scene evoke a sense of reverence. They frame the Cathedral, creating a natural sanctuary, a bridge between the urban realm and the hallowed ground of the church. And finally, the church's door, perfectly centered in the picture, becomes the focal point. It's an invitation, a gateway to solace and prayer. The black and white tones imbue it with a timeless quality, suggesting that it has stood as a beacon of hope for generations.
