Living and working in Noble park, Vinh actively photographs the areas around Dandenong, Noble Park and Springvale, often documenting the annual Lunar New Year, local boxing clubs, football clubs and the urban environment.
In this series Vinh's work focuses on public and communal sites like basketball courts, skate parks, railway stations, shopping centres and bus stations - everyday utilities and social spaces around the City of Greater Dandenong and how they appeared during the COVID pandemic. Vinh has a passion for combat sport and often photographs major boxing events as an amateur photographer.
