ARLINGTON, Virginia (CNN) -- An exhibit featuring photographs from the Vietnam War, taken by photojournalists who were killed or reported missing in Indochina, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos, is on display at the Newseum until January 4, 1998.

vxtreme CNN's Garrick Utley takes a retrospective look at the Vietnam War through the eyes of the photojournalists who documented it.

"Requiem: By the Photographers Who Died in Vietnam and Indochina" is a memorial to the men and women who gave their lives while covering the conflict that began with the French Indochina War of the 1950s and culminated with the fall of Phnom Penh and Saigon in 1975.

The exhibit is based on a book of the same title, edited by Horst Faas and Tim Page -- both of whom are photographers who worked and were wounded in the conflict.

Among the 135 photojournalists who died while covering the wars are some of the most famous photojournalists of the century, including Larry Burrows, Robert Capa, Henri Huet, and Kyochi Sawada.
