Vietnam war pictures

(Photographs used in this blog are used purely with the intention of creating awareness about great photojournalism. I specify the name of the photographer and the source of the photograph to acknowledge the copyright. This blog has no commercial purpose.)

A friend posted this link from a Denverpost blog on facebook, and I am reposting it here as I feel these are very powerful images and reportage that underlines the crucial role played by photojournalists on the Vietnam war front in creating public opinion. Several iconic images here, but also several pictures that perhaps have not been seen before. April 30 marked the 35th anniversary of the fall of Saigon, and these photographs strongly bring back pain of the Vietnam war.

Also posting a fascinating link from Nieman Lab about how 15 news organisation collaborated to narrate a single story

Happy reading!
