Dith Pran

Today Dith Pran, a New York Times photographer, died of pancreatic cancer in a hospital in NJ. If you had never heard of Dith Pran, perhaps you have seen the movie The Killing Fields which tells the true story of Dith escaping the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia. His story made a big impression on me. I had met him during assignments around NY. He was a gentle and sweet man with a nice smile.

Dith Pran's last word a NY Times multimedia.

Here is an article in The New York Times and a slide show on Dith Pran.
