Tim Page recalls his golden age of photography, the Vietnam War
You could almost smell the cordite in the air as Tim Page
, the veteran Vietnam War photographer held court at a packed-out Meta House tonight. Page is in town for a few days to host this exhibition of his photos as well as sniffing around for more clues to the fate of his two friends, Sean Flynn and Dana Stone, who were the main focus of the Q and A session that followed the screening of the 1991 Granada documentary Danger On the Edge of Town. Page, who was wounded in action three times, captured some of the most iconic images of the Vietnam War and has authored many books, and has more projects on the go after recently relocating to live in Australia. He certainly hasn't closed the book on the Flynn and Stone disappearance and revealed that movie makers are ultra keen to put the story on the big screen. As for Page's exhibition, the photographs covered two levels of Meta House and were on sale for $450 and more, attracting immense interest from the audience who were captivated by a man who made his name more than forty years ago in the melting-pot of Southeast Asia.
