​​ORPHANS  OF THE TEMPLE

Twenty years ago, a baby was abandoned at the Thinh Dai Temple in Northern Vietnam. A monk living at the temple took it upon himself to raise the baby as his own. Today, his family of orphans has grown to over 30 kids. While living in Hanoi in 2015, I visited the temple and documented the lives of these charismatic individuals. A photo exhibit was held in Hanoi, Viet Nam, and all proceeds went to the kids.
