[Photos] A View of 1968 Cho Lon Through the Lens of an Australian Soldier


Through the lens of Gary Grayson, a former Australian military officer, life persisted in 1968 Saigon despite the tumultuous political climate enveloping the region at the time.

Grayson was a member of the Australian Signal Corps, which provided communication support during the American War. With his trusty camera, Grayson captured the essence of life in Saigon in its ordinary, yet nostalgic, form during deployment. Even in its peaceful moments, Saigon couldn’t detach itself from the reality of war. This contrast between ordinary and abnormality is strikingly highlighted in his photos.
