Photographs From Viet NamBook - 2009
Photographed over the past decade and a half, Spring Visits: Photographs from Viet Nam, records Don Unrau's travels through the country where he served as a 21 year-old American soldier. In sumptuous black and white imagery, he counters the enduring stigma of the War with disarming portraits of peaceful village life and, in the burgeoning urbanity of Hanoi, snapshots of an entire generation of Vietnamese youth for whom the War is lived as history, however visible. Still, the conflict's specters haunt Unrau's scenes in grass-mended bomb craters and war remnants that have become fixtures of the landscape, as well as images that shore up its horrors, from children selling toy helicopters on the streets of Ho Chi Minh City to a truck emerging from a shroud of fog that unmistakably conjures the smoke of heavy artillery.
