Korea during the 1960s

During 1960 and again in 1966 I viisted Korea, the first time to do research on the surviving Korean court music, and the second time to make recordings and films of Korean traditional music. During that period Korea was strongly bound to tradition, colorful and vibrant.

Photos from 1966 along with some of my field recordings.

Hong Kong in 1964 and 1966

My first visit to Hong Kong was in 1951. I had no camera nor did I know how to use one. I returned in 1964 and again in 1966 to find it changing, something that was even more pronouced in later visits in the 70s, 80s and 90s. These pictures I took when it still seemed very much to be a Chinese city.
