Rephotographing Vietnam
September 20, 2007 8:52 AM   Subscribe

Vietnam Then/Now. The enormously talented photographer courtneyutt traveled to Vietnam with her father, who served in 1970-1971. courtneyutt turned his Vietnam photo album into a rephotography project, revisiting pagodas, roundabouts, waterfalls, etc. etc. Ain't never been there, but I can tell you, Vietnam has really changed. Nothing warlike here -- she says, "my father was mostly interested in buildings! which makes sense, because after he returned from vietnam he became an architect." (See previous rephotography projects on mefi here and here. Nothing as personal as courtneyutt's.)

Luscious countryside, beautiful looking people, delicious food, proud history... Vietnam is my favourite place in the world. I would totally recommend it as a holiday destination. This pics are great but cannot convey how incredible the country really is

See? SEE? See what might happen if we pull out of Iraq? Liberal morons! Look at the horror, the vast killing fields, the people forced into socialist totalitarian lockstep, their economic livelyhood stripped! LOOK!
