Rate this:
Peter Steinhauer's photographs are the product of seven years of total immersion in the life and culture of Vietnam. They are a personal response to that culture and its people, and they penetrate to the heart of modern Vietnam. These photographs are works of art in their own right -- every one a black-and-white image made with a medium- or large-format camera. Steinhauer's powerful, dramatic landscapes reveal the beauty and the astounding diversity of Vietnam: from the lush mountain topography and thick fogs of the North, along the 1500 miles of white sand coastline to the intricate riverine maze of the Mekong Delta. His portrait photography reflects his fascination with the Vietnamese people and his profound respect. It is Peter Steinhauer's admiration for the traditional culture and the premium he places on artistic quality that distinguish his photographs and this book from virtually every other work about Vietnam published to date.
