Lot 182 - from Tim Page's "Nam" Box. Limited edition with 20 Images.
1 - Death at Dong Long Lach, near Bin Hoa - 2nd January '69
A nun from the destroyed church and seminary, just beyond the perimeter of the air base, 20 km north of Saigon passes the body of an NVA soldier killed while attempting to spring his comrades from a nearby POW camp. After the aborted attack a battalion of Bo Doi made a last ditch stand in the refugee commune's church: upon sunrise, they were annihilated by helicopter gunships and ground troops.
2 - Peace Prayers, Dao Island - '68
John Steinbeck Jnr, the writer, said of the Dao Island "If all rivers were religious, this is the sea into which they would flow". On an island sandbar in the Mekong between My Tho and Ben Tre, in the delta south of Saigon, a uniquely Vietnamese sect prayed for peace 24 Hours a day, year round. There were no weapons allowed, and no curfew, deserters from both sides were welcomed and guided by the Dao Dua, an ex chemical engineer guru who created this macrobiotic commune of peace in the mid sixties."
