Recent Acquisition: Donald Unrau’s “War Story”

Donald Unrau, “War Story,” 2014 (2016.10)

Donald Unrau’s “War Story” is a portfolio comprised of twenty portraits of American Vietnam Veterans. Under each image is a handwritten text, written by the subject of the portrait. The texts were written before the photographs were made. The photos were made between 1984 and 1989. The images and words, both personal and political, are profoundly moving.
