Agent Orange
The Long-Term Effects of Agent Orange

War photographer Philip Jones Griffiths discusses the pictures he documented and the visions he saw when visiting Vietnamese villages that had been sprayed with Agent Orange, a herbicide that contains high amounts of dioxin. As targets of the United States’ plan for herbicidal warfare during the Vietnam War, these areas were routinely covered with this herbicide, causing many children to be born with deformities. In this video, Griffiths talks about his experience visiting a village with the highest percentage of malformed children in Vietnam. He discusses the upsetting images he photographed and also shares an emotional anecdote about one girl assumed to be “brain dead.”
