Unknown photographer

I happened upon this post to Photo.net’s forum, called “A Minor Treasure: Slides from Vietnam, 1967-1968.”   The poster came across a bunch of slides in the estate of a recently deceased man, scanned them, and set up a slideshow on Flickr.  Most of the images are of the Vietnamese people, but there are a couple shots of American GIs.

It’s always eerie to look at an unknown photographer’s historical photographs,  particularly when they are of a time and place so emotionally charged as Vietnam in the late 1960s.
