Unexploded Ordnance: Don’t Touch!

This is a poster that is at the Phonsavan, Laos, office of UXO-Lao, the national demining organization. As you might expect, more boys than girls are maimed/killed by the Vietnam-era unexploded ordnance left over from the Secret War, in which the United States played a major role (those are all munitions manufactured/deployed by the United States pictured in the poster).

The red text in the upper left states Haam Jap! (roughly translated: Don’t Touch!). I’ll have a follow up post about a very cool film project done with the Lone Buffalo school’s students soon. Stay tuned!

Buddha Tree In The Mist—In A Client’s Home

I met a wonderful couple, Tim and Lena, in Laos, he was working for the UN at UXO-Lao on unexploded ordnance (UXO) demining projects and she was working at COPE. They really loved my Buddha Tree in the Mist panorama. So, here are some shots of it hanging in their home in Oslo. The print is actually hanging straight on the wall, but after some champagne and Tim’s self-admittedly questionable skills with a camera… thank you both!

Through The Infirmary #2

In Laos, as in most of Asia, one takes off their shoes before entering a building. This is a great practice, keeping the inside of buildings much cleaner. However, it can lead to a bit of chaos right at the doorway… click to enlarge.
