About the Book
This collection of photographs of the people of Vietnam and Cambodia represents a new departure for Nick. His images explore the lives of ordinary people, whom he photographed in everyday situations. There is a poignancy in these images as they stare at us from the page. Children seem mature beyond their years, and adults display a certain fortitude and wisdom. Perhaps it is the unfortunate past that both countries have endured that has given rise to this mood. But through it all there is a determination to close that ugly chapter of their history and move beyond the difficult times of the past.
