Description from the packaging.

  • New Media Invision Awards 1995 Best of Show.
  • From the creator of From Alice to Ocean and the Day in the Life Book Series.
  • Go on assignment with the world's top photographers.

You are invited...
to join me and 70 of the world's leading photojournalists on an extraordinary assignment: to create the most intimate portrait of Vietnam and its people to date.

The Vietnamese government granted us unprecedented permission to travel freely throughout this enigmatic country for seven days. As a result, we were able to capture unforgettable images of a nation and ancient culture in the midst of great change.

Through this interactive journey, I hope that you will not only come to know the people and stories behind these images, but also find yourself on your own passage of understanding about Vietnam today.
