Vietnam Inc.

From the Archive

40 Years Since the End of US Involvement in Vietnam Conflict

First published in 1971, "Vietnam Inc." was crucial in changing public attitudes in the United States, turning the tide of opinion and ultimately helping to put an end to the Vietnam War. Philip Jones Griffiths' classic account of the war was the outcome of three years reporting and is one of the most detailed surveys of any conflict. Showing us the true horrors of the war as well as a study of Vietnamese rural life, Griffiths created a compelling argument against the de-humanizing power
of the modern war machine and against American imperialism.
Rare and highly sought-after, the book has become one of the enduring classics of photojournalism and is now available in this new edition - a careful recreation of the original with Philip Jones Griffiths' personal layouts and commentaries.
The reissue also includes an introduction by the American linguist and political critic Noam Chomsky.

Echoes of a Vanished World

8374493184_3de54642c1  
Echoes of a Vanished World - National Theatre
A Lifetime in Pictures, by Robin Hanbury-Tenison

Robin Hanbury-Tenison, the "greatest explorer of the last twenty years" (Sunday Times) is also one of the founders of Survival International.
As such, he has been a tireless champion of the rights of indigenous peoples and, in the early years of his travels, an obsessive photographer of their homelands as they were eroded by the modern world. 

Hanbury-Tenison photographed extensively and collected objects
from remote tribal people while travelling during the 50s, 60s and 70s. These objects and images were unearthed recently to create the exhibition, many having not been looked at for fifty years.
