Mai An Hoa. Get yours at bighugelabs.com/flickr

I think I think too much,
but most of the time I know how
to smile.

My Vietnamese name, An Hoa
means peace and tranquility,
two of my most favorite things
in the world.

A doctoral student most of the time
and image-maker sometimes,
I enjoy studies of people
because the face
is a canvas of emotion.

    "I love Mai An Hoa`s pictures. Diving into her stream is like going into a place of beauty and tranquility. Her ability to vary and to show us different sides of her life behind the lens is just admirable. Her portraits are beyond great. I love them. Look at the way she is using the light and how she uses shadows with outstanding results.

    I like to repeat what jody9 has said as she put is so precisely: “She is a treasure of both talent and generosity of spirit. I'm so glad that she is my flickr friend.”"

    "An is a bit of a treasure, and I know I can't keep her all to myself but I like to imagine I can. She'll break your heart in a good way, and then put it back together. Also, the world appears to arrange itself in beautiful harmonies just as she's coming along with her camera. Must be coincidence, I suppose."

    "To view Mai An Hoa's photostream is to disappear into another world of beauty and stillness that resonate in your mind long after you've seen her images for the first time. Her passion and energy and technical expertise are evident in every image she presents to us. Every one is a unique treat from an artist with a unique vision. I look forward to every new image she posts on flickr. She is a treasure of both talent and generosity of spirit. I'm so glad that she is my flickr friend."

    "Take a deep breath before visiting Mai An Hoa's photostream, as you will find yourself gasping again and again as each beautiful frame opens before you. Peace and tranquility, yes, but also drama, sensuality, and an unerring sense of rhythm infuse her work. I feel refreshed and inspired after each visit."
