Dorothy Simpson Krause's Vietnam Journal

The works of art below combine photographic images with text from the artist's journal, raising interesting questions about memoir and truth. What is the impact of this combination of image and text? To what extent is the idea of truth reinforced (and by what), and to what extent is the idea of truth undermined (and by what)? To what degree do truth and art coexist?
