Photographer's Note

I was scanning the photogenic landscape of Bassac River - a Mekong river tributary, when they came into my view finder, strolling leisurely on the river bank bounded by corn fields. From Chau Doc delta town, the river flows to Cambodia and it's a source of continuity that has never disappointed the Vietnamese for centuries.

The receding water during this dry season leaves its banks sit exposed and sometimes cracking in the sun, only to return during the monsoon rainy season, flooding fields, replenishing the delta with water, fish and fertile soil.


The river is their life and their hope....,
