Portrait of Nguyen Thi Khoan

Portrait of my grandmother I took of her in Vietnam. I traveled with journalist Tomáš Vasilko and photographer Vladimír Šimíček to translate stories that were later published in Denník N. The article was dealing with invisible migration and through the story of my family described the long-distance relationships among members and their different lives in different parts of the world. This was the last time I saw her in person.
