Malcolm Browne, Horst Fass and Roy Essoyan: the men who documented the Vietnam War

© 1963 Associated Press

Former Associated Press correspondent and photographer Malcolm Browne, best known for his award-winning image of a Vietnamese Buddhist monk who set himself ablaze in political protest, has died aged 81. Browne’s death follows the recent passing of Associated Press writer Roy Essoyan, correspondent George Esper, and photographer Horst Faas. All were part of the same generation of journalists who documented the Vietnam War. Here, we celebrate their work.
