Heroes

In the month of March two of my favorite photographers were laid to rest. Larry Burrows and Philip Jones Griffiths.

Burrows, who with 3 other journalist had been lost since 1971 when their helicopter was shot down over Laos during the Vietnam War, were finally laid to rest.

Griffiths, who actually prompted me to start this blog (when I met him and didn't realize who I was talking to) passed away in his home in London.

RIP Larry Burrows and Philip Jones Griffiths.
