Through a lens darkly…

A picture is a thousand words…in the case of Horst Faas you could multiply that by ten. His photgraphs of the Vietnam war are harrowing, beautiful and full of humanity. They tell the story of the ordinary person in extraordinary times. Faas died today. His work, reprinted in The Daily Telegraph, should be viewed by all those who want to see the reality of war and the innermost struggles of the human spriit. RIP Horst. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/culturepicturegalleries/9259915/Horst-Faas-Pulitzer-Prize-winning-Vietnam-War-photographer.html#?frame=2216791
