    Two Tim Page videos

    Tim Page is on my list of the three best Vietnam conflict photographers (others are Duncan and Burrows). I've just found two videos of Pages work. The first one shows his use of the Leica 21's.

    Tim Page, Nam, a visual tribute to the 21st anniversary of it's publication.

    Is he using the 21 on an M8? Some of the shots don't look wide enough to me.

    Some were shot long before the M8. Only Page knows and between the drugs and wounds he may not know but can he make an image.

    My favorite Tim Page quote: “Take the glamour out of the war?! I mean, how the bloody hell can you do that? Go and take the glamour out of a Huey, go take the glamour out of a Sheridan … Can you take the glamour out of a Cobra or getting stoned on China Beach? … Oh war is good for you, you can’t take the glamour out of that. It’s like trying to take the glamour out of sex, trying to take the glamour out of The Rolling Stones … I mean, you know that, it just can’t be done."
