Martin Tucker, Vietnam Photographs from North Carolina Veterans Thursday, September 12, 7pm When American soldiers returned home from Vietnam, most put their memories away. Decades later, North Carolina veterans contributed thousands of dusty and faded personal photographs to what started as a class project at the Sawtooth School for Visual Art in Winston-Salem. It evolved into a national traveling exhibition and then a permanent collection of the North Carolina Museum of History called "A Thousand Words: Photographs by Vietnam Veterans." For many of these men and women, this was their first opportunity to show what they couldn't say. Photographer and Vietnam-era vet Martin Tucker presents selected glimpses of those unforgettable experiences. As an award-winning Los Angeles photojournalist with over 20 years experience, Martin Tucker believes every picture should tell a story. His photographs have appeared in The Los Angeles Times, The Los Angeles Times Magazine, The Washington Post, The Associated Press, People Magazine, The Malibu Times, The Pacific Palisades Post, Us Weekly Magazine, Community Arts Cafe Magazine, The Winston- Salem Journal, Southern California Sports Magazine and Charlotte Magazine. He is a member of the National Press Photographers Association, the Press Photographers Association of Greater Los Angeles and a lifetime member of The Actors Studio and the US Navy SEAL Museum Association.
