The nature photographer was to share his story and images during a Feb. 17 talk at UofL.

The free, public talk, “Return to the Land of the Dragons: A Veteran’s Quest for Freedom from the Past, Emotional Liberation, Mutual Forgiveness,” will be rescheduled for a later date.

Moryc, based in Nashville, Tenn., has wrestled with post-traumatic stress disorder and participated in group and individual therapy to deal with wartime memories that began with his 1968 arrival in Vietnam at age 20. He returned to the country decades later with longtime friend David Horvath of Louisville and documented the visit through photography.

The talk sponsors are the Honors Student Council; Peace, Justice and Conflict Transformation Program; Social Change Program; Center for Asian Democracy; Anne Braden Institute for Social Justice Research; Muhammad Ali Institute for Peace and Justice; Department of History; McConnell Center; Commonwealth Center for the Humanities and Society; Office of the Vice Provost for Diversity and International Affairs; and the Office of Military and Veteran Student Services.
