Photographer's Note

He's neither a former Viet Cong guerrilla nor a commie North Vietnam soldier.

Just a humble motorbike taxi driver waiting for passenger outside the wall of Hanoi old quarter. The lightweight pith helmet is a well known item worn by the VC during Indo-China wars 1945 -1975, but it's still widely worn by civilians mostly in the northern provinces namely in Hanoi.

Its use has seen sharp decline of late when the motorbike helmet became mandatory for riders.
