Using archives on Vietnam war
The NAM project at the University of the Arts, London is bringing together the photographic archives of Phillip Jones Griffiths, aspect of the film archive of Stanley Kubrick, and the journalistic archive of Phillip Knightley in an interactive multimedia resource that looks at the resonances of the conflict in Vietnam today. It then gets students working with the archives, developing their own commentaries based on the primary sources.
This video piece was created by Alex Milan Tracy as part of his research into Agent Orange for his MA in Photojournalism & Documentary photography.
The project will be completed early next year, with more content from the archives and students made available under a number of licences.
