WAR JOURNALIST ONCE SAID "If your pictures aren't good enough, you're not close enough." But photographer Henning Christoph wanted to be anywhere but close to the crisis unfolding in Vietnam.

AFRAID OF BEING DRAFTED, he fled to Germany in 1968. It was there that he heard about another fight for freedom: Northern Ireland. He was drawn into the turmoil which ironically became his "own personal Vietnam."
  CHRISTOPH REMEMBERS: "I wanted to support their struggle with my photographs although that struggle also frequently put my life in danger through close contact with the IRA."

HE FOCUSED ON the children surrounded by violence, documenting them as they grew over the course of ten years. In 1978, he published a book documenting his reportage from within the crisis zone: photographs of a conflict that still rages today.
