Reconnecting with Vietnam and Cambodia

A collection of photographs by award winning Scenic Rim photographer Barry Cheeseman. In 1968 -1969 Barry  spent some time in Vietnam as a National Serviceman and infantry man during the American conflict. He never thought he would return or care about Vietnam and its neighbours.  After 40 years his wife finally convinced him to return and find some kind of closure for his past experiences.  Since that first return trip he has returned more than 20 times, supported a Vietnamese school,  become friends with the Vietnamese Consul General To Australia, numerous Vietnamese Government officials, artists, photographers and business leaders. In this body of work he hopes to convey to others some aspects of the life of the Vietnamese and Cambodian people.

Vietnam Vet members of the Beaudesert R.S.L. Sub Branch reflect on their life experiences and journeys as they reconnect with communities in Vietnam over the past 40 years.  Supported by Beaudesert R.S.L. Sub Branch.
