Along about 1968 the Vietnam War was what occupied every aspect of the news media. There were hundreds of photojournalists that were embedded with the troops, many of which were killed. I remember seeing a picture at the time that just left me dumbstruck. It's one of those images that takes a second or two for you to realize what it's saying. I never saw it again.
I remember that picture very clearly so I tried to recreate it.
