"With my camera, I capture little things that we often don't notice in everyday life. I also like to observe people and photograph them in everyday situations“.— Michael Nguyen
The series By The Roadside with its various parts is Michael Nguyen's most important field of work. Photosgraphs from Germany and neighboring countries

If we walk with our eyes open, we can see interesting, beautiful, and also ugly things along the road every day. And if we walk with not only with our eyes but also with our heart and mind open, you will discover a world that would otherwise remain closed to us. Sometimes spectacular. Sometimes ordinary but surprisingly miraculous. Michael Nguyen accompanies us on little journeys through places in Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Luxembourg, Austria, and elsewhere, to discover what the random walk leads us to. “By the Roadside" consists several parts which are shown in the Portfolio section in the menufolder Photography. In addition to these parts, some portfolios are presented in the Features Section that have a special focus.
