Photographer Catherine Karnow captures a changing Vietnam

To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the end of the Vietnam War, the Art Vietnam Gallery in Hanoi is showing “Vietnam: 25 Years of Documenting a Changing Country,” a photo exhibition of National Geographic photographer Catherine Karnow’s lifelong work in that country. In his introduction to the exhibition, Andrew Lam writes that the photographs capture a country that has many versions of itself.
