Mark Jury: Part 1 – Rock & Roll War Photographer

Posted by John Mikulak on

Short Takes is going behind the lens of Waverly, PA photojournalist Mark Jury, who captured striking images from the frontlines of the Vietnam war that were published to great acclaim in The Vietnam Photo Book. We not only explore Mark’s work, but also the impact the war had on him and how he still struggles with PTSD from what he experienced decades ago.

In Part 1, we’ll discover how Mark was sent to Vietnam with a Top Security clearance to photograph all aspects of the war,  what he saw while he was there, and what has never left him.

Warning: this video contains imagery that may be disturbing or inappropriate for some audiences.
