I am the only non-Vietnamese photographer to have photographed Hầu Đồng ceremonies in such depth.
In addition to the large color photographs and scholarly explanatory text, the book also features interviews with
7 prominent Vietnamese mediums-clairvoyants on their life stories, and on their spiritual connection with Đạo Mẫu deities.
These are exclusive first run advance copies, and will individually be signed by me (if so wished)
and may also be personalized with the recipient's name (and any message) upon request.
