Photographer @utnicky, best known for the iconic "napalm girl" image, is retiring.
In 1972 the United States was bogged down in the Vietnam War. Then Ut shot the "napalm girl" photo. It changed our stomach for war. Ut is largely credited with saving 9-year-old Kim Phuc's life. When soldiers refused to help her, he dropped everything and took her to the hospital. Today, they are lifelong friends.
Ut then came to L.A. and continued to take pictures. He's retiring this month, but only after transporting us to some of the greatest stories of our day. Ut has spent the last 50 years giving us glimpses of the world we will never forget. He captured images of the famous to the infamous, Hollywood at its worst and best, riots, fires and earthquakes.
"I feel lucky. I saw so many big stories in L.A.," Ut said.

Una estona per al record
