There was a magazine that was published in North Vietnam from the late 1950s into the 1970s called “VIET-NAM.” It was published in foreign languages and was a kind of “advertisement” for the country.

Like so many glossy magazines at that time from around the world, it contained many pictures, and most of the pictures were of women. I photographed some images from some issues of that magazine from the 1960s. I will present them here without commenting on them, as “a picture is worth a thousand words” already, so there’s no need for me to say anything additional. Enjoy these beautiful images of a bygone age!!
