[From the Foreward] This exhibition is a tribute to my late father, Stanley Karnow, who not only introduced me to Vietnam, but proudly and always told me that I was carrying on his legacy. He taught me to be a critical thinker, how to write, and to be a story-teller. Only recently, looking through his papers do I now see his tireless work ethic, which I strive to emulate. I also dedicate this show to my beloved mother, an extraordinary artist, who instilled and nurtured my creative spirit. She was glamorous, beautiful, mannered and outspoken. She was creative in everything she did.
