A Small Voice Podcast – 138 – Tim Page

British photojournalist Tim Page was born in 1944 and left England at 17 to travel across Europe and the Middle East en route to India and Nepal. He found himself in Laos at the time of the civil war and ended up working as a stringer for wire service United Press International. From there he moved on to Saigon where he covered the Vietnam War for the next five years working largely on assignment for Time-Life, Upi, Paris Match and Associated Press. He also found time to cover the Six Day War in the Middle East in 1967. The role of war-photographer suited Tim’s craving for danger and excitement. He became an iconic photographer of the Vietnam War and his pictures were the visual inspiration for many films of the period. The photojournalist played by Dennis Hopper in Francis Ford Coppola’s seminal 1979 movie Apocalypse Now was based on Tim.
