Tim Page, legendary Vietnam War photographer, dies at 78

Tim Page, legendary Vietnam War photographer and counter-culture figure, has died from cancer at home in the hills of Bellingen in the Mid North Coast of NSW on August 24. He was 78 years old.

Page found fame as one of the “young Apaches of the Press Corps”; freelancers who covered the wars of Indochina — Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia — during the 1960s and 70s. He would cover many other wars in his time, from Israel to Bosnia and Afghanistan, as well as the aftermath of war in places like East Timor and the Solomon Islands.

He was born in Tunbridge Wells in Kent, England in 1944 and raised by a foster family after his father, a merchant sailor, went down in the north Atlantic when his ship was sunk by a German U-Boat during World War II.
