Photographer Tim Page, whose images and exploits from the Vietnam War made him a legendary figure of journalism in the 1960s, died Wednesday in Australia at the age of 78, fellow journalist Ben Bohane confirmed to CNN.
Page was also the inspiration for the photojournalist played by Dennis Hopper in the Vietnam War movie "Apocalypse Now."
May his pictures live forever.

No, Jim, I didn't. I was at the Continental Hotel on a few occasions and met several civilian photographers. I spoke with Larry Borrows a few times and invited him on an upcoming operation. He showed up and spent a couple of days with my team. Great guy! I met Mr. Faas, too, and saw Sean Flynn (didn't meet him). I was really in awe of those guys. I'm sadden to learn of Tim Page's passing. He was one of the greats, to be sure.

Mike
