Malcolm Browne is most famous for his Pulitzer Prize-winning photo of the self-immolation of Thích Quảng Đức, a Buddhist monk who was protesting the persecution of Buddhists by the South Vietnam’s Roman Catholic government. Browne passed away last on August 27th, of complications from Parkinson’s disease at the age of 81. Originally hailing from New York City, New York, Browne first delved into journalism after being drafted into the Korean War, and within two decades, his work would capture the collective experience and sentiments of an entire generation in turmoil, striving for global change.

Browne’s image of the now infamous “Burning Monk” has become one of the most enduring photos of the Vietnam War, which ultimately prompted President Kennedy to reconsider his Vietnam policy.
