Small Wars

Rescue Untitled, Thanh-Hoa, 1998

An-My Lê An-My Lê’s, Small Wars series deals with the question of how we remember, glorify, and imagine war after the fact. Lê, who was born in Saigon in 1960 and came to the United States as a refugee in 1975, created this series to explore, as she describes it, “the Vietnam of the mind.” Her new series was shot at the Marine Corps Air Ground Control Center in California, a desert outpost where marines train for combat in Afghanistan and Iraq. selected works
