Requiem shows many of the last pictures taken by each person along with the moving stories about the photographer and the subject. At the back of the book is the Bio of each of the 135 journalists either MIA or KIA.
If you were only to buy one photography book about Vietnam, make it this one.
Some of the greatest photographers of all time are listed here.
Some of their photographs have remained unseen for some 40 years. Some of the photographs taken were indeed the last visions seen by photographers who were actually killed whilst in the act of taking the photographs themselves.
The first hand reality of the 'at war' experience is brought home to the unitiated reader. To take these shots the photographers were of a necessity extremely close to the action and sometimes in the very midst of it. For their sacrifice in obtaining these images they lost their lives.
One can only sit back with awe at the scenes illustrated and wonder at the suffering, humanity & sometimes lack of it, that perpetuated these conflicts.
These photographers have done a great service in bringing home the reality of war to those who were not there. An amazing and fitting epitaph to those who fought, suffered and died on both sides.
A great coffee table book, and a great tribute to all war time photographers around the word both past and present.
