          Commemorating the first anniversary of Abbas’s passing, Folia Gallery, in collaboration with Association Abbas Photos, presented for the first time in Europe an exhibition of photographs from the reportage made by Abbas in Vietnam from 1972 to 1975, and 30 years later, during his return in 2008.

          This exhibition was presented in conjunction with Abbas’s new book Vietnam, Forget ME Not, published by Delpire Editeur.

          “December 1972. We visit a refugee camp, located in a former US military base in Da Nang. ‘Forget ME Not’ is written clumsily on the door of a ramshackle hut… Forty five years later, I tell myself that it is also time for me to write ‘Forget ME Not’ somewhere. I dive into my contact sheets, thrilled to revive memories evoked by the strips of negatives, amazed to discover some gems that didn’t capture my attention during the first edit in 1972.” – Abbas
