‘THE ART OF LOSING’: A THONG HOANG COLLAB WITH TRANG KHIEU
Photographer Calls Series His Proudest Work Yet
Will Trang Khieu’s angular face, high-cheekbones and striking eyes ever go out of style? Not in this lifetime we don’t think. The personal project ‘Art of Losing’, by photographer Thong Hoang, aka ‘Tam Mure’, is another example of the model’s hypnotic presence, and of her ability to present a blank canvas to her creative partners.
Shot exclusively with Thong throughout 2016, he calls the new series his ‘proudest work so far’, and has clearly thrown his heart and soul into its presentation. He also paid tribute to his muse. “The Art of Losing is a collaboration between me and Trang Khieu,” he wrote on his Facebook page. “2016 has been a year of constant losses for me, but I’ve also called it this because to be a model, you have to master the art of losing your own identity (and) adapt to a variety of other roles; a blank canvas, so to speak.
“No one else in my mind can do that as well as Trang.”
