A FORMER Bradford Grammar School pupil is displaying photographs from his month long motorbike journey through Vietnam at an art gallery.

Hamish Irvine recently completed a month long 2000km motorbike journey through the country, and the images he took makes up the ‘Vi?t Nam’ exhibition being held at Arrosti Cafe in Leeds.

All the images were shot on a 1952 Rolleiflex camera and Mr Irvine uses the camera that photographs squares on to medium format film, inspired by documentary black and white photography, paying homage to great iconic war photographers.

He said: "The exhibition is photographed on a camera that actually dates back before the Vietnam War itself and that’s what really makes it unique. Not many photographers shoot on film anymore and not many people see it. It’s interesting because film is slowly starting to become popular again.

“I’ve seen Vietnam in a lot of films including Francis Coppola’s ‘Apocalypse Now’ and Stanley Kubrick’s ‘Full Metal Jacket’. It’s such a stunningly beautiful landscape I wanted to explore it further.”

The exhibition lasts until January 4.
