“These images usually sit in a box untouched or viewed,” says photo editor Kendra Rennick,
who has spent hours poring over and dusting off the slides that lie
tucked away, hidden somewhere in the houses of Vietnam War Veterans.
These images are the ones the photojournalists missed, the ones that
never made it to the Associated Press; they’re the pictures soldiers
took while overseas, palling around with one another and venturing into
the neighborhoods that surrounded them.
Founder Kendra Rennick says her goal,“… is to curate a collection of
imagery shot by servicemen and women who served in Vietnam. I am most
interested in photo slides for their aesthetic, as well as slides’
original intention. The idea that slides are shot with the hopes of
being shown to a group of people and projected on a wall interests me.
Most people have no way of viewing their slides so they usually sit in a
box untouched or viewed.”
