Young girl orphans are raised by nuns in a small temple of Central Vietnam and they are taught with Vietnamese language in the evening.

I was born at Binh Khe, Binh Dinh, Vietnam, in 1939 and worked for the Department of Health and Social Affairs, then the National Development Research Program, served in Military Zone II, Republic of Vietnam, until April 30, 1975. After the collapse of South Vietnam, I became a political prisoner, then resettled in the U.S. in 1991 through the Humanitarian Operation (HO) program. I have participated in the many local and international photographic clubs including: - Vietnamese Society of Art’s Photography in 1969 - Federation Internaional de l’Art Photographic (Europe) in 1975
