Vietnam by Mitch Epstein

Book Description

Mitch Epstein's evocative pictures reveal a complex Vietnam that few Americans have ever seen.This is not a document about the war; nor is it the pastoral idyll other photographers have portrayed. Vietnam, through Epstein's eyes, is a sometimes disturbing and sometimes sublime palimpsest. Vietnam: A Book of Changes interprets a culture and landscape largely cut off from the West for the last thirty years, and now open to a market economy and a new relationship to America. The photographs are suffused with the rawness of Vietnamese life lived on the economic and political edge. Under the layer of friendship lies the tension of politics; under beauty lies violence; under the stark faces of remote villagers is the entrepreneurial momentum drawing them to the city; and under the remnants of war is an artistic bohemia grappling with new freedoms and continued censorship.

From 2011 to 2012, the author explored New Yorks five boroughs in search of remarkable trees, often returning to photograph the same trees through the changing seasons and light. Many of these trees, he learnt, were planted in one context a farm or nursery, for instance and had survived to be part of another, a city street or public garden.
