A RiverArts Salon is a (virtual) place to learn something new, share ideas, explore interesting topics, see and be seen, and have fun.
Tuesdays from 5 - 5:45, on Zoom
James Allen Hall led a discussion about Kate Daniel's poem, "War Photograph." It's a short and beautiful, but also harrowing. It concerns Nick Ut's famous Pulitzer Prize-winning photograph of a napalm attack on a village in the Vietnam War that was published in the New York Times in 1972.
A video recording of the Salon discussion will be posted shortly.
The following link includes the photograph as well as a bit more information on photojournalism and empathy: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/02/17/opinion/photojournalism-children-nick-ut.html
