This week was freezing the moment. I chose to use the image of general Nguyen shooting the viet cong as my image as this image is the first thing that comes to mind whenever i think of the vietnam war. As a task i think i could have written more which is why after finishing i decided to add several more paragraphs about Eddie Adams , the photographer who took the picture, and as i was so interested in his work I went out and bought the book by his Wife about his work, simply titled: Vietnam. The information i read there about the day that took the infamous photo greatly helped my work and let me bring a new angle to some work I earlier felt was finished. While in the lecture we looked at Lartigue who i also find intriguing, i felt Adams image would suit my needs better.
