[Photos] In Minimalist Street Photography, Good Frames Come to Those Who Wait

Photographer Victor Morante is all about the little details in a frame.

This set of photos, part of a project he simply calls Vietnam, highlights attention to detail. All were taken in Saigon, and showcase sharp, clean lines often at odds with the city's chaotic character.

"I'm really obsessed with the composition, looking after matching colors, lines, simple and tidy backgrounds, kind of minimal street photography, and of course, adding the human factor," Morante tells Saigoneer. "Without exception, in my frames, the subject and the spot must match somehow, colors, gestures, something that complements each other nicely."
