According to Thoi Dai, Mr. Lance V. Nix was only 24 years old when he held the camera on his hands and took those photos. He is now a 75-year-old man who lives in Port Orford city, Oregon state, the US, and still conserve the authenticity of the emotion for photography by taking photos and collaborating with the local news outlet named Port Orford News.
With series of retentive memories about Vietnam, the US veteran uses photography to record the lives of the indigenous people in My Tho, where his barracks and his soldiers used to be there.
