Born into an illustrious Annamite family, Doan Vinh Thuan, a lawyer and writer, met Mathilde Hossenlopp, a native of Alsace, in Baden Baden; they fell in love at first sight and the two, after their marriage, moved to Indochina, then a French colony.
There Mathilde discovered photography, and produced an important collection of glass plates between 1915 and 1929. Her subjects are mainly the rituals of colonial life: holidaying, rice cultivation, Vietnamese good society and those employed in jobs bordering on slavery.

The couple’s grandson, visual artist Tiane Doan na Champassak, brings together here Mathilde’s work and a selection of texts written by her husband between 1909 and 1913.
