Jeffry Wolin does not need to say a word in order for Inconvenient Stories to speak loudly. Coupled with narratives from 50 Vietnam Veterans about their lives during the war, Wolin’s photographs take on a strength and persistence that make these accounts undeniably and extraordinarily powerful. These images appeared a solo exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Photography in October of 2005.
