Musician in traditional dress at the Temple of Literature. This is the
first picture of a series taken in Hanoi. Hanoi is the political heart
of Vietnam, but Saigon (now called Ho Chi Minh City) is the commercial
heart of the country.
Pa: H'mong girl from Lau Chai, a
tiny town near Sapa in Northwest Viet Nam. The photos in this series were
taken while walking on trails high in the mountains where several groups
of hill tribes lead traditional life styles in tiny villages surrounding
the market town of Sa Pa.
Area: Limestone towers like this can be seen at Tam Coc and also in
Ha Long Bay. The fog and clouds lend a surreal quality to the scenery. Legend
says that the area was formed by a dragon as he traveled from the mountains
to the ocean. Also included are photos from Hoa Lu and Bat Trang.
and Southern Viet Nam: A Hindu temple at My Son - an archaeological
site with structures dating from the 2nd to the 15th Centuries. Also in
this series are photos from Hoi An, Danang, the Marble Mountains, the Saigon
area and the Mekong Delta.
