Every month one photographer will have their photo selected to be the face of 500px, the leading online network for photographers with over 15 million members from 195 countries.
The photo was featured throughout the month of March on 500px social channels – including Facebook and Twitter – and on 500px.com as well as the 500px mobile app.
About Nguyễn Vân
The winning photograph of Nguyễn Vân, a Vietnamese model and actress, was taken in November during a photo shoot at the Bà Thiên Hậu Pagoda, an 18th-century buddhist temple in Saigon honouring a sea goddess, featuring colourful, ornate Chinese architecture.
A few more accolades
Since being featured as the face of 500px, the photo has also been included as one of the inspirational shots for the 500px Solo Portraits contest and shortlisted as one of the top submissions in 500px Portrait of a Woman. I am also grateful that another photo of Vân along with two other portraits of Kimi and Elke were shortlisted in Solo Portraits.
I look forward to building on this experience, sharing my photographic journey with you, and seeking feedback to improve along the way.
