Hey, I’m Alden Anderson. Curious about culture and history. I’m currently living in Vietnam, working on a photography project “Vietnam The People” with my partner Trinh Nguyen.
I worked in the film and TV industry in Los Angles for about 10 years. In 2016 I left Los Angeles to travel the world. I came to explore Vietnam and haven’t really left. The friendliness of the people and the diverse ethnic cultures are two good reasons for that.
Originally this website was a place I could write about my travels and post in-depth guides to the places I visited. More recently it is shifting to focus on my culture and story-driven photography projects in Vietnam.
Integral to “Vietnam The People” is giving back and helping the people that we meet. We do this by printing and delivering photos, giving people care packages, food, clothing, and/or financial support. Some examples of this can be found on Instagram @360nomad. If this is something you’d like to support you can purchase prints or join us on Patreon here
Trinh and I also do photography tours and workshops in Vietnam with a focus on the people and culture. From a few hours to multiple weeks, through Hoi An 360 we connect travelers with the people of Vietnam and provide detailed, personalized photography instruction. If you are traveling to Vietnam and want to connect with the people while learning photography check out our website here.
Thank you for visiting and feel free to drop me a line!
