BEHIND the WIRE

BEHIND the WIRE is a highly acclaimed photographic exhibition about Vietnam veterans; their stories, their jobs and their experience, in their words.

Captured is the essence of the veterans’ very personal memories and reaches our hearts with the blending of their take-home life lessons. The exhibition features soldiers of all ranks and variety of jobs – cooks, dental assistants, forward scouts, training team members, nurses and more.

Susan Gordon-Brown is a highly respected and sought-after Australian photographer. She has a particular interest in portrait and documentary photography. Her photographic expertise is regularly called upon by many of Australia’s top companies, government departments and not for profit organisations.

Much has been written about the politics and military battles and strategy but I was interested in finding out about day-to-day life, how our guys coped with the situations they were put in and how they settled into life on their return to Australia. Susan Gordon-Brown referring to the Vietnam War.

This fascinating exhibition will be displayed at the National Vietnam Veterans Museum from Saturday 1 December at 2pm until the end of May 2019.
