The Napalm Girl picture that could have been and never was… due to a difficult to load Leica camera.

I just read a great article and If you love photography and photojournalism, good pictures and great stories, you should read it too.

It’s about the Napalm Girl (Kim Phuc) that Nick Ut took in Vietnam, in the town of Trang Bang in the summer of 1972 and how photographer David Burnett missed that shot because he was loading a stubborn Leica famous for being really difficult to load.

Take a look at it HERE.
