Mr. Cu came from a poor family – his father worked as a cyclo driver in Hue. The family lived in a sampan on the Perfume River. Mr Cu, the second of six children, was born in the spring of 1945.
His childhood went with the poor people. He did many different jobs and overcome a lot of challenges to have success like today. Althought his life is better now-managing a crowded restaurants and taking photographs, he alway remembers his poor life in the past. That is the reason why all his photos are about the poor sampan villagers who remind him about his childhood and his passed mother.
Mr. Cu came from a poor family. He went to school, completed grade twelve and went to work as a bus driver. Then came the Vietnam War. But the job lasted only two years: in 1971 the U.S. began their withdrawal from Vietnam. In 1974 Mr. Cu met and married his wife in Qui Nhon. After the American withdrawal, he decided that he and his wife would be safer in Hue, closer to his family.
