TET is a medium-format collection of photographs depicting the recent state of infamous battlegrounds involved in the Vietnam War. The book's title in reference to the 1968 Tet Offensive, a military campaign carried out by the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese People’s Army of Vietnam against the oppositional forces in South Vietnam. Bradley’s photographs emphasize the extent to which the landscapes impacted by the Offensive, while rendered quiet and somber in the decades afterwards, still carry the enormous historical weight of bloodshed.
Some have been developed or consumed by nature throughout the half-century since the war;
in such instances, TET suggests a comparison of the war-stricken landscapes and their
evolutions to new spaces. Vietnamese citizens and uniformed officials are also captured
through Bradley’s lens, evoking an inquisition into life and affairs of Vietnam’s post-war
generation(s). In its incorporation of war monuments, landmarks and daily life in equal
proportions, TET assumes an explorative stance in regards to Vietnam in the 21st century.
