'Napalm Girl' Photographer, 42 Years Later: 'Never in My Life Have I Seen What I Saw'

Nick Ut on His 'Napalm Girl' Photograph, 42 Years Later: 'Never in My Life Have I Seen What I Saw'

Even 42 years later, Nick Ut can still remember June 8, 1972: The day he took the photo that changed his life.

"It was on Highway 1 by the Cambodian border," he told PEOPLE recently. When he took the photo, Ut was a young photographer with the Associated Press, covering the war that was destroying his native country.

On the morning of June 8, Ut saw a group of refugees traveling down the highway. The South Vietnamese army had been fighting the Viet Cong outside the villages there, and the people living in the area were forced to flee.

Ut was on the scene when South Vietnamese planes, thinking the refugees were Viet Cong, started bombing them.

"There were a lot of people dead – a lot of children," he recalls. He was about to turn back when he saw the final plane drop its bombs.

Sochi's Future? See Sarajevo's Olympic Ruins 30 Years Later

Originally posted 02/24/2014 02:00PM

Images of run-down Olympics venues are so ubiquitous that they've become their own genre of "ruin porn."

But no Olympic sites posses the tragic history of those built for the 1984 Winter Games in Sarajevo, the first Winter Olympics ever held in a communist country. Less than a decade after hosting the Games, the city was besieged by Bosnian Serb forces for three years at the height of the Bosnian War. An estimated 10,000 civilians died during the siege, and the venues of the Olympic park were transformed into scenes of heavy fighting.

Two years before Diane Keaton charmed audiences in Annie Hall, she posed for photographer Norman Seeff.

But Seeff says Keaton's off-camera persona matched up with what she portrayed on-screen.

"You know when you see Diane in a movie and there’s this kind of personality, this bright-eyed innocence? When I worked with her, there was this same feeling, but underneath the innocence was such a smart woman. She had the wonderful ability to just be herself. She flowed from one thing to the other, so I just kept pace with her. It was a jewel of a session," he told Vanity Fair of photographing the actress.
