Incongruities - 8 June 2007/8 June 1972

From State of the Art

Both pictures by Nick Ut taken on June 8th...

Bizarre? Sad? Signs of the times?

Yeah, it is a sad coincidence on the anniversary of famous his Vietnam shot. However, I remember reading Duane Michals explain that even the best photographers have to do a little paparazzi stuff to pay the bills so I won't judge Ut for it.

On the face of it, it seems lke a comedown for Ut.

On the other hand, both pictures are sad and bleak commentaries on the times in which they are/were created.
