I’d like to tell you about a book that was given to me by a photographer friend.
It’s called “REQUIEM, by the photographers who died in Vietnam and Indochina” (edited by Horst Faas and Tim Page; Random House New York).
This book is about the photographers who died or disappeared while covering the wars in Asia; it’s a very moving book because it describes the difficult conditions of this kind of reporting, as they risk their lives just as much as the soldiers.
This book pays tribute to them and reminds us that they died in the name of information.
For me, personally, it’s a souvenir that I hold dear because the friend who gave it to me has sadly passed away.
This book is out of print, but I strongly recommend reading it if by chance you find it second-hand.
