Vietnam: A Book of Changes
This compelling and poetic photographic odyssey reveals a complicated country few Americans have ever seen. This is not a document about the war, nor is it the pastoral idyll other photographers have shown us. Vietnam, through Epstein's eyes, is a sometimes disturbing and sometimes sublime portrait of a country's ongoing transformation.
"This is beautiful, authoritative work by an extremely intelligent and gifted photographer."
"One of the year's most engaging books . . . unflichingly vivid and honest.”
—Andy Grundberg, The New York Times Book Review
“Epstein's color pictures from Vietnam are so flat-out beautiful they tend to overwhelm judgment. This is rich, engrossing work . . . one of the year's best books.”
—The Village Voice
“A haunting sense of things hidden and never quite understood, a secret story behind the story. These are pictures meant to be read. . . .”
—The Good Book Guide
