Nieman Reports;Spring2005, Vol. 59 Issue 1, p117
The article narrates the author's return to Vietnam and shows some of his peaceful and quiet pictures. Forty years ago, I was a United Press International staff photographer in the Saigon bureau, and I Spent two years making some really scarry pictures. Scary to make, scary to look at. I loved Vietnam, its people, its colors, its geography, its food and culture. And I have always wished I could have had, or taken, the time to photograph more of the beauty and elegance of that part of the world, more of their daily doings.
