Visual Dispatches from the Vietnam War
The Currier Museum of Art
New Hampshire

Visual Dispatches from the Vietnam War is an exhibition that focuses on the influence that photojournalism had on our perceptions of the Vietnam War.  Various images, such as the infamous ‘Napalm Girl’ photograph, are displayed alongside video interviews of the journalists who took them.  The result is an understanding of how images can bring to light the true nature of war and also, sometimes, misrepresent situations.

At the end of an exhibition is an area where Vietnam veterans are welcomed to place their own photographs and memories, which offer another perspective to the story.  Veterans are also welcomed to stay in contact with the museum as part of the Veterans History Project.  As a result, this exhibition is not only about the powerful and shocking images of the Vietnam War, but also about raising awareness of the psychological issues that Veterans deal with.
