In 1964, Saigon’s Phu Dong Roundabout didn’t feature the towering bronze statue of folk hero Thanh Giong. Instead of the congestion hot spot the intersection is known for today, it was actually spacious and airy with nary a shop nor bubble tea parlor in sight.
These film shots, taken by American serviceman Chris Newlon Green, are perhaps some of the most well-preserved and –composed images of 1960s Vietnam that we’ve come across. Arty night shots with light painting, intimate portraits and expansive landscapes: Green show a knack for photography, aided by the roll of film’s incredible colors.
