This amazing show opening is an event not to be missed! Farm to Fit will be providing hors d’oeuvres for the opening Friday April 5th from 6-10.
A Weather Walked In is a 28-photo curation of Charlie Haughey’s Vietnam photo collection. Experiences of the Vietnam war that he managed to capture (and retain, mostly) on film. Charlie shot nearly 2,000 photos during the Vietnam War and they are now being released for the first time in 45 years. (View images from the collection as they are released on Flickr)
From his Biography on the Chieu Hoi Blog:
Charlie Haughey (Chieu Hoi to his friends in the Army 25th Infantry Division), a now-retired cabinet maker, was drafted to the US Army in 1967. He served a tour of duty in Vietnam from March 1968 to May of 1969 with the 25th. Charlie, a photographer from a young age, was commissioned by his commanding officer to take photos—not traditional combat photos, but morale-boosting content to uplift spirits of the members of the unit. When he left Vietnam for good, Charlie brought back to the United States almost two thousand negatives that had captured his unique view on the war and life in the army. The negatives lay in boxes until the fall of 2012, when a chance meeting brought them out of dormancy. For 45 years, the photos have waited for their time in the light.
Charlie’s story and the images he captured are fascinating insights into the Vietnam War and this opening is an event we are proud to be a part of!
