A bit about Larry Burrows

Larry Burrows, who died 40 years ago yesterday when the chopper he was in was shot down in Laos, was one of the few photographers working during the early 60's in colour.
His work ran in Life magazine and many are iconic images of his times. In 2008 they found the remains of the military chopper and found part of his Leica top plate.
I would say the shot of the soldier reaching for his buddy was the most famous although the shots inside the chopper were also very strong.
