Product Description

• Close to 200 beautiful portraits and landscape photographs documenting Hanoi's transformation from 1985 to 2015

• Visually compelling record of a city's post-war evolution over the course of three decades, well before the 'tourist boom' and a glimpse into how a city has become modernized

• Intimate and candid portraits of people in their home settings, street scenes, urban architecture, and the city's surrounding countryside

• One of very few Western photographers to gain access to post-war North Vietnam

• Detailed captions provide a strong sense of place and context, reflecting historical references and evocative changes to the landscape; a complete study over time Documentary photographer William E. Crawford spent three decades documenting Vietnam, and in particular Hanoi, its people and the surrounding countryside. As one of the very first Western photographers to work in post-war North Vietnam, Crawford was drawn back to the country numerous times at regular intervals between 1985 and 2015 to record this fascinating country's culture, people, and society with beautiful, compelling and intimate photographs, concentrating on colonial and indigenous architecture, urban details, portraits, and landscapes.

In 1986, the Vietnam's Communist leadership began to shift from a Soviet-style central planning model toward free-market economic reforms. As a result, Hanoi has been transformed over the last three decades, becoming an example of how traditional Asian and developing cities have often been torn down or allowed to crumble - only to re-emerge in a 'modernized' form.

Unlike photo-journalism, which is interested in the theatre of the moment, Crawford's evocative and powerful photography chronicles life throughout Hanoi and its surroundings over the course of the last three decades. Filled with full-color photographs and informative essays on his experiences and the people he encountered, Crawford's work - showcased in this beautifully presented volume - provides a unique visual catalogue of the evolution of a city and its inhabitants, and particularly the complex historical area known as The 36 Streets.
