Fragile Paradise by Christian Lajoumard

The Vietnamese island of Phu Quoc is located in the South of Vietnam. Close to the Cambodian coast it has long been a source of conflict between the two countries. An unforgiving land with activities centered around the sea, long isolated, the island opened a few years ago to mass tourism. The landscape and the coast changed Quickly, capital Q.

“Fragile Paradise” isn’t a multi-perspective exploration of the brutality of change in a long-static place, but the melancholic portrait of what remains at the dawn of a world turning upside-down.
