The Associated Press is reporting that legendary photojournalist Horst Faas has passed at the age of 79. Faas, a two-time Pulitzer Prize winner, lead the AP’s coverage of the Vietnam War.

He lived for a time with David Halberstam, the late New York Times correspondent, who is quoted as saying, “I don’t think anyone stayed longer, took more risks or showed greater devotion to his work and his colleagues. I think of him as nothing less than a genius.”
