The photographer surprises us with vibrant images of an ancient culture, essentially undiminished by strife or modernism. The images dance as if in motion, not so much stopping time as stretching it before our eyes. A world of intention beats in pictures of a fishnet flung against the wind, a mallet about to strike wood or a lone cyclist balancing dozens of baskets. The photographer's 21st-century lens sometimes echoes the lyrics of Vietnamese folk verse and the words of poets long gone. Timeless Vietnam presents a bit of this poetry, too.
