There are obituaries of Dutch photojournalist Hugh van Es (1941-2009) here at The Guardian and here at The New York Times.

You can find an obituary of Benjamin Chin (1921-2009) here in The Los Angeles Times.

With the exception of one photo by van Es - of the evacuation of the U.S. Embassy in Saigon in advance of the Viet Cong victory April 1975 - I had not heard of either photographer. Again, it is amazing how many accomplished photographers there are out there.
