Guest curator Suzanne Williamson

With generous support from
Dr. Robert L. Drapkin

Dr. Drapkin has assembled an extensive collection of press photographs spanning the Vietnam War. These images capture the conflict and pathos of this difficult part of American history. The exhibition will explore the photographs themselves, how they were created, and experiences through a local context. Understanding the American War in Vietnam, a book written by Dr. Drapkin will accompany the exhibition. Text in the exhibition and book illuminate the war’s history from multiple perspectives.  

Proceeds from the exhibition and book sales will benefit the Rory Peck Trust, which makes conflict training in hostile environments available to photographers covering conflict at their own personal risk.
