The inspiration for this dramatic little set was an actual photograph taken by the great photojournalist Don McCullin during the Battle of Hue following the TET Offensive of 1968.
McCullin spent weeks embedded with the U.S. Marines battling to retake the ancient Imperial city of HUE. His reportage and photos of that battle are among the very finest of any taken of any war at any time. Now in his 80s the photographer has left all his wars behind him and now prefers the quiet, more peaceful pastoral landscapes of his native Britain and the occasional commissioned portrait.
This is K&C’s ‘homage’ to a great and very brave photographer.
