With her photo essay, My Brother’s War, Jessica Hines attempts to gain a better understanding of what happened to her brother, Gary, when he was a soldier in the American war in Viet Nam. Drafted, he served two years and returned home a victim of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Ten years later, he took his own life. Hines photographs the letters that he wrote and, with diligence, managed to locate and speak with some of his wartime friends. More recently, Hines traveled to Viet Nam to retrace her brother’s “footsteps”. The research and resulting photography has revealed much about the nature of veterans’ experiences in Viet Nam and the nature of suffering that ensues when a family loses a loved one to war.

"It's a remarkable photobook that conveys an important political message as well as the compelling story of a personal tragedy that confronts some difficult, universal truths. Brilliant combination of great photography, thoughtful text, and excellent book design. Highly recommended!"–Jim Casper, Lens Culture

Jessica, first and foremost congratulations on your Lens Culture award! Wow! The Grand Prize!

That said, I am not surprised, especially after reviewing your book here on blurb. It is a wonderful pictorial, so exquisitely rendered that I immediately knew I wanted one! I can't wait to visit you in Georgia and look forward to seeing your work in person.

I too have my books here on blurb. Please check them out:

I was truly moved by this work. Being a recent Vet i find it hard to express and expose what it was like to be in war. I found a common place and could relate while looking at these photos.
