‘Photography … at War’

When bodies of water separate a country from its troops, its people rely on reports from journalists and images from photographers to capture what war looks like from the front lines. These are brave people who with a pen and notepad, or with a camera up to one eye, brace themselves for sights and experiences that do not require a pen and paper or a camera to remember. They risk their lives to record a time in history for people everywhere.

Recently, photographers, writers and correspondents during the Vietnam War reunited for the sixth time since the end of that conflict, and for the first time, they met in Westminster, at the Nguoi Viet Daily News, and spoke about their experiences. Pulitzer Prize-winning photographers at the event included Nick Ut, David Kennerly and Neal Ulevich.

“Photography … at War,”  a collection featuring many of the most famous Vietnam War photographs, will be on display at the Nguoi Viet Daily News, located at 14771 Moran St. in Westminster.

The exhibit is open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily through May 29.
