Vietnam continues to have a lingering stigma of fatalities and battles of the past, but photographer Ozgur Ozserin captures the everyday lifestyle of this once war-torn nation.

He sheds light on the culture and hones in on the daily activities of the Vietnamese. For the most part, Vietnam is either spoken about in regards to the war or its exotic beaches; however, Ozserin’s photos depict imagery of beautiful and simplistic scenes that speaks for themselves.

Photos of massive rock landscapes, people working and old buildings are some of the most compelling shots. The remnants of the past are visible, but there’s a feeling of bliss that can only be the result of a nation knowing it has overcome trials and tribulation.
