Extract from interview with Alison Martin from AdoptVietnam.
Alison Martin : “Your photographs in ‘Pain and Grace’ evoke a strong emotional response. What ideas did you wish to convey in your work?”
Jim Gensheimer: “I want to show the real Vietnam. There are many books that show pretty landscapes and pretty people. In my book, there is some of that, but I also show the less fortunate, whether it be a one-legged veteran scooting along on his hands or children deformed from Agent Orange laying on a hospital floor.”
