Terra Cognita - Urban Jungle

Jamie Maxtone-Graham

The Desiring Garden (Vietnam, 2011)

Within the highly urbanized environment of Hanoi, Jamie Maxtone-Graham captures the reactions of people who encounter a staged garden full of flowers, fruit, vegetables and animals that were bought in the markets of Vietnam’s capital. The result is a Rousseauesque game with our ideas of the exotic, in which the logic of the location, and the photographic document itself, are undermined.

Jamie Maxtone-Graham (United States, 1957) has been working as a cameraman for over 20 years, and since 1990 has been recording the changing Vietnamese society in both documentaries and feature films. He was a Fulbright Research Fellow in 2007, and received financing for a photo project on current Vietnamese youth culture. Presently Maxtone-Graham lives with his wife, the filmmaker Nguyen Trinh Thi, and their daughter in Hanoi.
