From CNN Correspondent Tom Mintier

HANOI, Vietnam (CNN) -- While it may not be the most complete collection of photographs from the Vietnam War...it may be the most important.

The exhibit called "Requiem: A Vietnam Collection" is now on display in Hanoi, Vietnam.

The pictures, nearly 300 of them, were taken by 135 photojournalists from all sides who lost their lives in the war.

"We will never sit together and talk about the good old days of Vietnam because there were no good days they were all bad days in a way," photographer Horst Faas said.

Faas knows it well -- he was the Associated Press's Chief Photographer in Saigon (now called Ho Chi Minh City) from 1962 until 1973.

The exhibit in Hanoi is a gift from the the people of the American state of Kentucky to Vietnam. The Vietnamese photographers are also included...more than 70 died taking pictures.

British photographer Tim Page developed the idea for requiem as a way to honor his friends.

"I think it is one of the most incredible bodies of photographic work ever assembled...the fact is that so many of these frames are the last ones retrieved from inside cameras, the last roll of film, it's like touching the spirit of the people who recorded those images," Page said.
