  • 35 years or more after seeing it as a tennage photographer just starting to take images, I've rewatched the BBC Arena documentary 'Mentioned in Dispatches' about Vietnam war photographer Tim Page. I thought I'd capture some brief thoughts about Tim's images, his influence on my photography and how the documentary looks now.
  • In the podcast: A catchup about what's been happening and the plans of the podcast, photobooks etc, and in the links, I take a look at one of my early heroes Vietnam war photographer Tim Page who died in August 2022. Tim had a huge influence on me as a young photographer. The 'Mentioned in Dispatches' BBC documentary especially sparked my interest in photojournalism.
