Kennedy to Kent State

For those traveling to Worcester, you need to check out the Kennedy to Kent State photographic exhibit at the Worcester Art Museum. The photos that caught my mind the most were Mark Shaw's photographs of the Kennedy family, Eddie Adams photos of the Vietnam War, and photos from the 1969 moon landing. Some are as disturbing as they are amazing like the photo of Mary Ann Vecchio kneeling in grief over Jeffrey Miller's lifeless body during the Kent State shootings. David Davies has created a compelling collection of photos that chronicle the turbulent history. The Boston Globe's Sebastian Smee talks about it:
