ARLINGTON, Virginia (CNN) -- An exhibit featuring photographs
from the Vietnam War, taken by photojournalists who were
killed or reported missing in Indochina, Vietnam, Cambodia
and Laos, is on display at the Newseum until January 4, 1998.
"Requiem: By the Photographers Who Died in Vietnam and
Indochina" is a memorial to the men and women who gave their
lives while covering the conflict that began with the French
Indochina War of the 1950s and culminated with the fall of
Phnom Penh and Saigon in 1975.
The exhibit is based on a book of the same title, edited by Horst Faas and Tim Page -- both of whom are photographers who worked and were wounded in the conflict.
Among the 135 photojournalists who died while covering the
wars are some of the most famous photojournalists of the
century, including Larry Burrows, Robert Capa, Henri Huet, and Kyochi Sawada.
