Fragments Of Rediscovered Time
Fragments of Rediscovered Time showcases the present day world of Sapa through the lens of a Kodak Duaflex II vintage camera from the early 1950s.

With Mads Monsen’s keen eye for detail and composition, the exhibition portrays a visual documentation of Sapa in a striking and unique way never seen before.

Fragments of Rediscovered Time is born from the concept of raising awareness about sustainability through reuse. It is also intended to explore and capture the essence of the past of the Sapa culture, people, their environment and how sustainability applies in the modern day with the advancement in infrastructure and technology surrounding them.

Monsen’s exhibition showcases 18 prints on sheet metal, with old metal hand-welded into custom art frames with a protective finish.

Born in Norway, Monsen underwent an apprenticeship with a commercial photography studio in Bergen, Norway. He graduated from Central Saint Martin's College of Art & Design with a BA (hons) in Graphic Design.

Monsen has lived and worked in Vietnam since 2000, where he runs Studio Mads Monsen, an editorial and commercial photography studio that allows him to explore and photograph a lot of the country. He is also co-founder of Oanh & Mads, providers of custom artwork and corporate gifts, specialising in traditional lacquerware fused with modern print technology.
