One of the most hard-hitting stories of the exhibition on the effects of Agent Orange in the War Remnants Museum in Ho Chi Minh City. Nguyen Can Hung was originally photographed in Ca Mau (left), by the Japanese Photojournalist Bunyo Ishikawa, standing in 1976 amongst trees devastated by the herbicide chemical Dioxin, sprayed by the US military. The photo on the right is Hung (left) and his elder son Hao (right) in 2007, sitting in front of the spot (now a shrimp farm) where he was originally photographed as a seven year old boy. Suffering from cerebral palsy and parkinson's disease, he was left almost speechless from the chemical poisoning. He died in 2008 from his illnesses.
