The Burning Monk 50th anniversary (AP) Malcolm Wilde Browne was 30 years old when he arrived in Saigon on Nov. 7, 1961, as AP’s first permanent correspondent there. From the start, Browne was filing the kind of big stories that would win him the Pulitzer Prize for reporting in 1964. But today, he is primarily remembered for a photograph taken 50 years ago on June 11, 1963, depicting the dignified yet horrific death by fiery suicide of Buddhist monk Thich Quang Duc.

Over 1,600 clicks on the ‘photo within a photo’ from Libya seen below, that I put on Twitpic the other day… So here it is again.. On the left you can see Paul Conroy’s photo, and if you look closely, you can see a pair of legs behind Tyler Hicks (first photographer from the right). I’m fairly certain, those legs belong to Yuri Kozyrev, who is taking the photo on the right pretty much at the same exact moment… Fairly random observation, I know, but still kinda interesting I thought…
