Vo An Ninh marveled at San Diego and was impressed by Washington, D.C. But the six decades he had spent photographing the people and natural splendor of his Vietnamese homeland had not prepared him for the glitter and neon of Las Vegas. "When I arrived in San Diego, I felt like a peasant visiting a city for the first time," said Vo, 86. "But when I saw Las Vegas and compared it to Hanoi, I felt like I had been living in the jungle. It's certainly the brightest city I've ever seen."

But when Vietnam's beloved nature photographer arrived at Los Angeles International Airport on Christmas Day, 1991, he promptly fell in love with America and its cities.
