Image of the Week* – L.A. NAM
On this Veterans Day 2014, I have created this self-portrait as a dedication to my Father & all those on both sides who suffered in the Vietnam War along with all the wars to come before & after.
Though I have not served in any wars, I have chosen to express this in form of a self-portrait because none of us are alone in this world & all of humanity suffers the horrifying effects of these bloody conflicts. Whether negative or positive, we are inner-twined like one thread of threads bound in this shared destiny. May we together move beyond the perpetuation of endless manufactured War$ & actualize a world of authentic Peace for All.
This is the 1st of my new Photo Series called – ‘Private Property’
