'The people saw combat from up close and are direct in speaking about it, making the accounts as powerful as they can be.'-Chicago Tribune
No thinking person during the Vietnam War era survived unscathed.
Those memories are now revisited as we are embroiled in another war with less than clear goals, mounting casualties, and returning combat veterans. But the personal memories of those who actually fought in Vietnam have never needed resurrection. In searing and intimate photographs, both historical and contemporary, presented with the voices of pride and honor, grief and pain, dread and anxiety, instability and rage, Jeffrey Wolin remembers a war through the lives of the men and women who lived it.
A traveling exhibition of the portraits and video by Wolin opened at the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago and is traveling to Washington, DC; Los Angeles; San Francisco; New York City; and more.
