Noted British-Australian war photographer Tim Page passed away on August 22, 2022. Page is best known for his powerful photographs documenting the Vietnam conflict, which he covered for Time and Life magazines, U.P.I., Paris Match and The Associated Press. As noted by Seth Mydans in his obituary for Page in the New York Times, Page's "photography was notable for its raw drama and its intimacy with danger, the product of the risks he took to immerse himself in combat."
