Born in Dalat in 1965, I'm a graphic designer and freelance photographer.
Since my childhood, I've been attracted by the images, years by years, when working as a designer, I found out that it was very difficult and limited in creation when doing art parallelly in business and passion. In 1993, I first bought my SLR camera with thinking that I could create any image for my self, any way, it was another kind of fine art, drawing with light.
Next year, I started to learn black and white technique and keep working in my darkroom until now. For me, photography seemed to be much more serious, to improve my photographic skills, I submitted my first B&W works to international Exhibitions…
In the influence of digital imaging revolution, in 2000, I started digitize my negatives and positives, then manipulated some of them, I didn't even know that I had been attracted by the "Digital lightroom" more and more!
One of my favourite subjects is Khmer monks's daily activities. Living in the south of Vietnam as a minor community, Khmer people might be the best representative for a distinguish colorful tradition in my country.

Dear Ly Hoang Long, I like your "Portfolio" and I appreciate very much your objective to let all people know about that monk's minor community. Nowadays it's really important as the world is becoming worst and worst every moment. The Khmer monks sparkling light is something that may help everyone to find his way. Sincerely yours.
