British artist Meirion Edwards is putting together a project that he hopes eventually will consist of a series of multimedia images from more than 1, 000 slides, negatives and photographs taken by serving soldiers, airmen, Marines, and sailors in Vietnam. The images, he says, will cover “in country as well as R and R, everything from Bob Hope and Raquel Welch to village scenes of everyday life.”
Edwards says he will be put the photographs together “with quotations and illustrations to construct visually stimulating images.” His main goals, he says, are “to bring to a new audience images of the Vietnam War by those that were there, and to sell the work and, after the expenses are covered, to donate a percentage to an organization supporting Vietnam veterans.”
If you’d like to help or have any ideas, Edwards would like to hear from you. His email is firstname.lastname@example.org If you contact, him please mention your read about it here at Vietnam Veterans of America’s Arts of War on the Web.
