[Photos] The Children of 1967 Vietnam

Some of these kids could be our moms and dads.

It’s mesmerizing to see the photos one comes across while searching for snapshots of old Saigon online. At times, it seems that many of those who were lucky enough to afford a camera back then hadn't quite mastered the nuances of photography yet.

Dutch photographer Henk Hilterman, however, wasn’t one of them; his work, as shown below, is nothing short of amazing. The crisp, brightly lit photos give us a glimpse into life in Vietnam in 1967 through the eyes of young children. Judging by Hilterman’s shots, living conditions in the country half a century ago weren't good for all of its citizens.
