Project update 12 of 12
Join us May 19th, 2017 at ANX Gallery in Portland, OR for A Weather Walked In 2017, a showing of 60” x 40” silver gelatin prints from Charlie Haughey’s collection of 50 year old Vietnam War photographs. The lost and found collection of photos has the power and intimacy of Larry Burrows work, with the time capsule element of Vivian Maier’s oeuvre.
A Weather Walked In 2017 will include eleven silver gelatin prints from original negatives, printed in archival quality and framed in handmade frames, as well as the recently completed coffee table book of 117 photographs from Haughey’s body of work. In attendance will be some of Haughey’s photo subjects from the 25th Infantry Division, who are seeing the images and connecting with Haughey for the first time in nearly 50 years.
Charlie Haughey shot nearly 3,000 photographs in 1968 and 1969 while stationed with the Army in Vietnam. The negatives sat in boxes for decades before being produced into an internationally acclaimed gallery showing. The story of Haughey’s lost and found work has been reported by CBS Sunday Morning, The Boston Globe, The Atlantic, and more. The first showing of Haughey’s work, A Weather Walked In, drew nearly 1,000 viewers in 2013.
