Another Asia II

Nicolas Pascarel

BLUE CORRIDOR (2005)

Yesterday and today blend together in Ho Chi Minh City, formerly Saigon. Vendors and managers share the sidewalks, and the sound of gongs in Buddhist temples mixes with scraps of music from chic cafes. Wandering through the city, Nicolas Pascarel happened on an intriguing building which appeared to be enveloped in a mysterious blue light. Once inside he found a jungle of concrete and peeling paint. There was no clear separation between the shops in the building and the dwellings. People walked around in a daze, as if they saw resignation as a survival strategy. Even Pascarel seemed to have landed in a hybrid world: a blue-painted corridor in whose dim light the ghosts of old Saigon encounter the high hopes of modern Ho Chi Minh City.
