vietnam field school

Am slowly sorting through the images of the journey to Vietnam in December. And am asking lots of questions of how to put the images together with the message... the journey was about poverty alleviation through culture: a holistic approach to how one maintains cultural heritage.

Here are my favourite images from My Son (because they feel so powerful): the remains of the Champa temples have giant bomb craters appearing throughout the site.

Bomb Crater #1

Bomb Crater #2

Napalm bomb shell and headless statue, My Son.
The remains of the two wars : the USA's bomb shell / french colonisation where a lot of the statue's heads are now residing in Musee Guimet, NY Met or private collections.
