Requiem: By the Photographers Who Died in Vietnam and Indochina provides a pictorial documentation of the history of the Vietnam War from the early 1950s through to the fall of Saigon in 1975. Organizers Horst Faas and Tim Page gathered thousands of photographs during from this time period. Their compelling selection of 160 images pays tribute to the 135 photojournalists who did not survive the conflicts in Southeast Asia. The exhibit of work by Americans, Europeans, Cambodians, and North and South Vietnamese and Vietcong includes pictures that have never been seen in the Western world prior to the compilation of this collection.

Faas and Page, who were both wounded in Vietnam, assembled the poignant group of images to memorialize their war buddies and other brave photographers who lost their lives. They offer a powerful portrait of this politically diverse war and provide powerful insights decades later.

The images are part of the collection of the George Eastman House/International Museum of Photography and Film in Rochester, NY. In 1997, Faas and Page published a book that documents the subject. Requiem is an international traveling exhibition featured for the first time in the Pacific Northwest at the Hallie Ford Museum. The Museum is hosting a series of lectures and films in conjunction with the exhibit.
