Sorry to make two off-topic posts in one day, but I’m doing a research project for my History of Photography class, and I chose to pursue the Vietnam photographs of Horst Faas. He is better known as an editor, having worked as the AP’s chief photographer for southeast Asia for most of the 60s, and he sent through many a controversial photo including Eddie Adams’ photo of Nguye Ngoc Loan, South Vietnam’s chief of police, executing a prisoner. I’ve long been enamored with the War in Vietnam and, I guess, the overall ridiculousness of it. It was a war where seemingly no one maintained their sanity. Anyway, his photos have this weird element of disaster that also inspires me. Here are a few.
