Photographer Larry Burrows spent nine years bringing the Vietnam War home with extraordinary immediacy in the pages of Life magazine. His 1965 photo essay on a U.S. Marine helicopter crew is considered one of the greatest photo essays ever made.
“I try to shoot them so that people will look and feel not revulsion, but an understanding of war.”
Burrows’s time covering the war is featured in “Reporting Vietnam,” a new exhibit that marks the 50th anniversary of the start of America’s first televised war and explores the dramatic stories of how journalists brought news about the war to a divided nation.
