During the Vietnam War, French-Vietnamese photographer Henri Huet captured the growing unrest and violence around him, ultimately giving his life in an effort to report on the war for the Associated Press news agency.

At an exhibit in Paris that marked the 40th anniversary of Huet's death, his close friend and chief photographer in Saigon at the time, Horst Faas, gave this first person account of Huet's life and the stories behind some of his most memorable photographs.
