Young war photographers in Cholon (Saigon) in 1968: Memories of Vietnam 1965 1975
I took this photo whilst in Cholon during one of the Viet Cong assaults on this Chinese sister city of Saigon. They were a cheerful couple of press photographers whilst my own nerves were on edge the whole time. I got lost there as I always did in Cholon but to find oneself wandering alone through deserted war torn streets was a most uncomfortable feeling. I wonder why I always went back for more?
